AP Artist Profile: Ben Davis '21

This year, Delbarton is blessed with seventeen artists in the Class of 2021. To give each of these talented young men the audience he deserves, we are highlighting each artist with a quotation from his artist's statement, a sample of his art and a link to his digital portfolio.

Our seventh featured artist is Ben Davis '21 who says this about his art: 
"I’m continuously captivated by the freedom and expression that art holds and use that to fuel my artistic energy. Art is an outlet for me. Whether it is simple doodles in a notebook or complex drawings in different mediums, art is a way for me to reflect and express my feelings. For my Sustained Investigation, I merged the two things that are incredibly important to me that I do on a daily basis - rowing and studio art. My images detail a day in the life of a rower and the beautiful complexity of the sport. I have illustrated several aspects of the sport such as the equipment, the athletes, and the different motions of the boat. Each image is developed through various techniques and processes involving mixed media."
