Ben Garst, born on Palm Sunday, 1991 in Virginia, attended Roanoke College, where he studied International Relations. In 2015 moved to Florence Italy to fully dedicate himself to painting, which had been his passion from a early age. Thematically, he focuses on the human condition in information era, attempting to reconciling biology with technology, and seeing how the latter affects our psychology. His work has been shown is group shows throughout Italy and the US including Palazzo Vecchio, The British Institute of Florence, and the Studio Arts Center International (SACI), as well as, Roanoke’s own, Taubman Museum of Fine Art. He is currently working, from in his studio in Roanoke, on his solo premier Analog Digital, which will premier August 3rd at Alexander Heath Contemporary.
