Benjamin Kreze is an artist whose work varies from painting and photography to new media installation. His recent work is a series of graphite miniature sculptures, inspired by the work of Dalton Ghetti and Willard Wigan.
Graphite fascinated him as a material, as it is known to be a mineral that can be found in space. After a while since he started working with it, he created his first works that measured only a couple of millimeters. Packets of cigarettes, men sitting on benches and remote controls were sculpted by Kreze’s hand, with his naked eye trained to see incredibly small structures.
His attempt on making the smallest graphite artworks ever, was indeed fruitful, with the viewers being forced to look at his sculptures only with a hand lens.
