Drinks & Dots - An Evening with the Artists
Featuring Ben Mosley & Kenneth Tom Olsen

Join us for an evening of wine and good conversation with the artists on Thursday, October 19th from 7-9pm

Ben Mosley and Kenneth Tom Olsen are both masters of pattern, shape, and composition. Both of these artists utilize stencils, stamps, and repetition of design elements to create rhythm and a sense of motion within their paintings. Ben will be visiting us from London and Kenneth will be here from his home in Denmark.
You can read more about them on our website: arton5th.com

Don't miss this unique opportunity to meet both of these artists while they are in Austin!

About Ben Mosley:
Action painting is a style which Ben Mosley has used to capture the drama and passion of sport, everyday life, and the environment around him. Mosley values spontaneity and creates his images by applying the paint in a gestural, dynamic fashion. His work bridges figurative and cubist styles, taking influence from the forms of Picasso and the colors of Matisse. "When my brush touches the canvas I become a composer of shape and pattern. I sculpt and mould images, and build form through the exaggeration of shape and pattern to convey my passion for the moment. Because I want to capture the dynamism, excitement, and movement of the environment around me, my brushwork is gestural, angular, and vigorous. It conveys the explosion of energy present within sport and everyday life.

About Kenneth Tom Olsen:
Olsen is a Danish artist who has been painting since his youth, however it was not always his primary career path. Following his service in the Danish Air Force, Olsen worked in the telecommunications business for more than 20 years. He recently left a position as CEO of a successful company that he helped to develop. This dramatic change in direction from the corporate world to art has given a new boost of inspiration to his work. Through his compositions, he seeks to explore his personal state of mind in search of new artistic expressions. He utilizes a variety of techniques in oil & acrylic, including brushes, palette knives, and spray paint. These experimental combinations inspire his continued exploration, testing the limits of light and dark, and bright colored abstraction.
