My name is Benjamin FRIESS, I am 30 years old, I live in the Ardèche,
in the south of France, I have been married for 3 years and I have one
son who's name Calvin.
Since I was young I always drew, but it was around the age of 17 that
I really started to create my own characters. At 22 I started oil
painting, and it was a turning point in my artistic life. 3 years ago
I tried digital painting by creating "Emerveillement", is where it all
I prefer oil painting, it is a pleasure to work on the textures. But
the tablet can do a lot more things, and easier.
I am inspired by fantasy illustrators and also by all other
illustrators work can be seen on the internet.
I am a self-taught, although my apprenticeship in the printing
industry has taught me some important bases.
