About The Artwork
Flamingo! 2 depicts a tropical landscape with palm trees, shallow
water and a flamboyance of flamingos, balancing against a pale blue
sky. Over the vista, the title ‘Flamingo!’ is superimposed in big
block letters, gently laced with a soft, blue, ‘Paint by Numbers’
pattern. Bright and poppy, the print subverts the picture postcard,
both offering and withholding a tantalising space within.
Benjamin Thomas Taylor is known for his bright, Pop Art inspired landscapes. Fuelled by a sense of joy, his detailed paintings and prints open up hyperreal spaces, crossing from reality into a parallel world of limitless possibility, full of colour and creation. Having studied painting at the University of Brighton, he has since gone on to exhibit with a number of galleries both in the UK and internationally.
