About Ben Kelley

Ben Kelley is a St. Louis-based artist whose work has been featured locally, in various offices and local art fairs, as well as internationally, notably for his cover art published on famed Dutch writer Nescio’s Titaneller.


I'm a fan of both experimentation and variety. Not surprisingly, my paintings often vary in theme from conceptual and meaningful, to colorful and expressive. I enjoy the discovery part of the creative process and how to communicate and connect with viewers through a visual medium. Often times, when I feel that I've accomplished a form of communication in a particular fashion, I end up challenging myself to find a new way to express an idea or emotion. It's this challenge that keeps me motivated and why I know my passion for artistic expression will always fuel my desire to create.
