Benny Wilding discovers his love for the arts for the first time in New York, at the age of 12, in the middle of the ’90s. Highly impressed by the painted walls criss-crossing the city that never sleeps, he returns to Montreal with the desire to shine in this new graffiti culture. Pursuing his new passion in all of its aspects, within his city and its surroundings, today he is more and more interested in aesthetic and artistic approaches and painting large scale murals.
Benny Wilding’s work is akin to American pop art, with references to comics, advertising and commercial lettering. The mural or the painting is constructed by surprising contrasts and associations. His studies in computer graphics and 3D animation certainly have an impact in his artistic approach.
