ARTIST STATEMENT / BIO
Ben Siekierski is studying Fine Art at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design. Ben is a strange dude as most people who have come across him in the wild can attest to, born in Colorado Ben spent most of his early life in blockbuster renting horror and Godzilla movies, stopping only to wear out his parents and ultimately his copy of Star Wars, who knew you could destroy a DVD by watching it too much. When not watching movies Ben was doodling all the time creating armies of storm troopers in the margins of his school work. Ben is incredibly driven to create art that both intrigues the public, whilst making his parents' scratch their heads in confusion.
