Native New Yorker, Benjamin Casiano settled in the neighboring state of CT. An accomplished creative director & designer received his BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.
After years in the field of advertising & promotions, he felt the need to revisit his first love of painting. Something he’s been doing in his spear time most of his life. He developed a mosaic style with bold colors and broad brush strokes. Owned by corporate & private collectors alike, his art is seen & purchased in numerous galleries in the US & Europe. None of it, however began this way. Sadly his one eye theme started long before his impairment. At one point he felt making art effected his perception. He developed a fascination with the mind's eye. Unfortunately he didn't have any premonition of blindness to one eye.
Was it an epiphany or some cosmic coincidence? Who’s to say? But now it's part of his alter-ego or maybe a reflection of his own subconscious. But as long as the universe gives him the ability, he'll continue making art, one painting at a time. One exhibition at a time.
