Ben J Hutchison is a painter living in Cincinnati, Ohio. For over a decade he has created a variety of artwork, including comics, animations, logos, and digital paintings. It wasn’t until 2012 that he decided to begin painting and choosing to use old painting prints found at garage sales and thrift stores as his canvas.
The prints he paints on are relics of 20th century decoration. This work is about taking these reproductions that we have all lived with in our parents or grandparents homes and giving them new life by painting his own vision into them.
They are on display throughout April at Melt in Northside.
