Art Love: Benjamin Craven

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring

British artist Benjamin Craven is known for his graphic geometric style and bold use of colour.

Inspired by architecture and everyday textures, Benjamin makes use of techniques including screen-printing and digital printing to bring his work to life.

His passion for design started at an early age, creating colourful and abstract patterns on Microsoft Paint before heading off to study Printed Textiles at Leeds College of Art.

His latest endeavour sees him extending his love of screen-printing to a new canvas, namely a range of what he calls “not your everyday tote bag”. Hand-made and screen-printed in Yorkshire, the bags are available in a range of fun prints.
