"I'm looking for as many colors as possible. Sometimes they are there. Sometimes my brain invents them"
Benjamin Abana has, due to his background and being half Danish, half Nigerian, a strong interest in both African and European art traditions, which are depicted in many of his paintings.
Keywords in his artwork are thoughts and feelings, that he visually brings to your attention in a realistic way. His style is raw and unpolished, yet calm and he creates a standstill for you to really dwell on and feel in his paintings.
