'If Ben Tolman’s artistic progeny populated our terrestrial world, he’d be an emperor. His ink drawings sprawl within a busy stretch of tightly-packed figures, cities stacked with viny organisms and machines staffed by soulful monsters. It’s a mythology for a universe without clear answers, but his visual tales, while perplexing, are insistently inviting.' via

Ben Tolman grew up and currently lives in Washington, DC. He received his BFA from the Corcoran College of Art & Design in 2005. He has exhibited work in the US and Europe, most recently at the Museum HR Giger in Switzerland and is currently working on large scale ink drawings covering a range of ideas from the imaginary to the visionary.
