Ben Heine: Multidisciplinary Visual Artist Finds Harmony Between Media

An Interview with the Artist, Photographer and Music Producer

Artwork by Ben Heine

Ben Heine is a multidisciplinary visual artist in true sense. He can play drums, piano, guitar, can speak six languages, has a degree in journalism and most importantly can paint and photograph. Two very strong visual media of drawing and photography become unified to create fascinating pieces of art. Success of his project Pencil vs Camera, conceived in April, 2010, is a proof of that. Digital Circlism, another idea materialised around the same point in time blends the best of pop art and pointillism to recreate portraits of famous personalities such as Marilyn Monroe, Freddie Mercury, Johny Depp, Lady Gaga and so on. Flesh and Acrylic is one of his latest projects having started in 2011.
