Formerly trained as an economist, Benjamin Ho(b.1980) adopts a macro approach in thinking about arts and a micro approach in doing arts. His practice stems from everyday living and is akin to having a conversation with oneself: looking on the inside to see the world “better”, vice-versa. Emotion, mood, colour and space are important elements in his works that materialize primarily in forms of paintings, installations and performances.
Benjamin graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (majoring in painting). His works have been exhibited in various places such as Ngee Ann Cultural Center, ARTrium @ MICA and Substation.
