New Work - Painting
Saatchi Yates are pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by British painter Benjamin
Spiers (1972). Spiers pairs methodical skills, with a mastery of styles that include surrealism, abstraction and cubism, bringing alive a world of hypnogogic fears and fantasies to his canvases.
Spiers studied at Goldsmiths, London under the tutorage of Peter Doig whose mastery of the marriage of traditional techniques with a contemporary figurative style had a founding influence. Spiers has later tutored at City & Guilds of London Art School shaping a new wave of Post- Digital Pop artists including British artist Oli Epp.
He has exhibited internationally including solo exhibitions at Carl Kostyál, London; James Hyman Fine Art, London; Hales Gallery, London; James Coleman Fine Art, London and the Museum of the Benemerita, Universidad Autonoma de Puebla, Mexico. His autumn show at Saatchi Yates will be the artist's largest scale presentation in London.
