Photorealist painter Benjamin Anderson!
Today on the show we have painter Benjamin Anderson, whose photo-realist paintings of swimming pools–and objects like cars and planes found underwater in said pools–are unlike any others you’ve seen.
He comes from an artistic family, his father Ron and his brother Sean are both painters, his mother Susan is an artist. But Benjamin lives a reclusive life back in the foothills of Carpinteria, and it was only through our mutual friend Julie B. Montgomery that I got to talk to him.
We had this chat in the three car garage that he has turned into his studio, which he needs because his paintings are often very large. In this talk we chat about influences, the mystery of swimming pools, and growing up surrounded by artists.
You can find him on the web at http://www.benjaminanderson.com/
