Benjamin Grund

Austria

Ben Grund is an artist, printmaker, and designer based in London. Born in Vienna in 1997, he grew up between Munich and London before settling in London to attend the art and design university Central Saint Martins in London to study Printed Textile Design. His work focuses on the relationship between materiality and emotional human perceptions on notions ranging from consumerism to mental health. Ben works in a wide-scoped practice including assemblage sculpture, printmaking, set design, and performance. Metal casting, electrics, painting, etching, sculpting, assemblage, welding, and textile manipulation are a few techniques frequently seen within Ben’s body of work. The melding and questioning of the notional line between art and design – furniture and sculpture – is a central theme within his upcoming graduate showcase in 2021 in London at Central Saint Martins.
