‘Wish You Were Here’ depicts an exotic landscape, all soft sands, gently lapping seas and palm trees, stretching away in saturated shades of peach and turquoise, slate blue and mustard yellow. Over the vista is superimposed the title ‘Wish You Were Here’ in big block letters, gently laced with a gold foil ‘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.
