Benjamin Sack is an American artist who received his BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2011. Sack’s work explores architecture as a flexible medium capable of expressing the unique space between realism and abstraction; where interpretation and our ability to create meaning is in flux. Within this space, Sack, furnished with pen and ink, encapsulates both the infinite and infinitesimal. His work invites the eye to explore drawings of the “big picture,” to gaze into a kaleidoscope of histories and to look further into the elemental world of lines and dots.
Sack draws a majority of his inspiration from art history and classical music. By combining these interests, Sack’s works become symphonies of ink. As well as art history and classical music, Sack derives a great amount of inspiration from the sciences, history, literature and the contemplation of paradoxes.
Sack was the graphics winner in the International Arts Festival sponsored by the Museum of Russian art. At the same institution, he was awarded a solo exhibition. Recently, Sack was the artist in residence for four months onboard the m/s Amsterdam on its grand voyage which circumnavigated the globe.
