Through poetic narratives, Bellas unexpectedly relocates autobiographical moments of enmity, longing and uncomfortable honesty in banal visual forms. By transforming everyday objects into sometimes-humorous icons of his most intimate life experiences, his work can be seen as a high-wire balancing act between intellect and emotion that manifests itself as a synthesis of the Humanities.
Benjamin Bellas is a 2007 recipient of an Illinois Arts Council International project grant and has exhibited at 1a space, Hong Kong; Istanbul Exhibition Center, Turkey; Track 16, Los Angeles; Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Finland; Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago; Florean Museum of Contemporary Art, Romania; among many others.
