Benny Bing is a self-taught Toronto based artist of Nigerian descent. We sat down and talked about his journey as an artist and how his wife helped him to rediscover the artist inside. What was first just a thoughtful gift from his wife while visiting in Paris, became the very thing that would shift his life forever. Benny’s vibrant and alluring portraits of women of colour is what sets him apart. His use of colour, great attention to detail, makes you stare with wonder. Benny’s paintings convey the type of emotion that really makes you step back and think. Listen to Benny’s full story here.
