*In the above picture is Ben Blanc...in case you were wondering*
Despite the fact that I arrived to the event pretty late(I like to call it "fashionably late") I still enjoyed it! At first I was all about taking pictures of some fashionable guests which I will be posting in the few days to come. After taking a few pictures my focus was then to talk to Ben Blanc who had been talking to EVERYONE. So I was slowly making my way over to him to see if I could talk to him and finally the people he was talking to had to leave. I had an amazing conversation on art in general AND more specifically HIS art. I must say that his sculptures are amazing and I have two main reasons of why I like them so much. Reason number 1: They are life sized! There's no need to use a magnifying glass to try a figure out what the sculpture is. Reason number 2: The sculptures are done in such a creative way! I actually asked him what inspired him to create these sculptures and he said he was basically trying to play around with how light hit the sculptures and produce a cool effect. He was also trying to play around with the art technique of contour lines(which is amazing because I have been doing the same in MY art class). We just had an amazing conversation and then exchanged business cards. To sum it all up: Ben Blanc is an amazing artist and has an amazing personality and is simply a super cool person. AND the party was definitely great! Thank you to Ben Blanc for displaying your art work and thank you to Louis for hosting the event!
