Bennett Slater is an illustrator, designer and graduate from the BAA interpretive illustration program at Sheridan Institute. Bennett’s work draws inspiration from the relationship the future shares with the past; new from old, life from death.

Utilizing traditional oil methods on wood, Bennett plays with a mixture of traditional flemish and dutch disciplines, with bold geometric forms linked to the contemporary avant-garde school of design. This dichotomy of contrasting artistic disciplines and influences lends itself to the underlying dualities observed in his work.
