AT 903 THIS JANUARY
PEN AND INK
Works by Ben Hucke
Kicking off the New Year 903 presents hyperrealist artist Ben Hucke in his first Solo show at 903.
Ben Hucke, a 34 year old Portland, Oregon native discovered drawing after the age of 30. It all started with a pen, a piece of paper, with the single goal of just having fun drawing some of his favorite places and objects.
“Drawing has fulfilled my eagerness to accomplish and learn everyday with the same intensity I once felt as a professional BMX rider”. “It is a very organic process which became a portal from professional athlete to artist”. “The technique of scribbling and layering with fine liner pens is an exciting process to watch come together over hundreds of hours”.
In the past four years Ben Hucke’s unique approach and relentless pursuit of representational pen and ink has gained him the audience of collectors nation wide as well as collectors in Dubai, Germany, Australia, Japan, Italy and the UK.
