Joseph Bencic explores ideas of perception, spirituality, and psychological processes in his work. Influenced by Surrealism and other art movements of the early part of the twentieth century, he uses symbolism and dream-like imagery to convey his ideas. His focus on geometric backgrounds implies ripples in perception, sometimes opening portals to other worlds, other times opening doors within the human mind.

Joseph loves art that is symbiotic, where artist and audience are both required to imbue power and meaning into an image.

"There are no limitations to the medium I choose to incorporate into my work; while some are traditional art and crafting materials, others are manifested digitally, and the rest are entirely mundane objects unexpectedly used in a particular given space."

Statement:

[field_gallery_main]

I am a passionate urbanist that believes in the importance of the public realm. I think our shared streetscape can be reinvigorated through public engagement, city pride and through work that strives to bring a sense of play to the everyday lifescape. Either built, natural, created or virtual, the focus of human habitation is fundamental to his work. As born creative his aspirations are always evolving however the underlining passion of communicating idea’s through quality and imaginative projects remains his ongoing object and motivation.
