BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1971, Georgetown, Guyane. Gavin Benjamin lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. USA.

Gavin Benjamin is a multi-faceted artist with backgrounds in commercial photography, painting, audio works, printmaking, interior design, and product design and creating theatre sets and backdrops. Born in South America, Gavin received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and was drawn to experiment with many mediums, but particularly to photography.

An internship in his freshman year with legendary portrait photographer Arnold Newman fueled his passion and led him to other opportunities and work for photographers Stephen Meisel and Kelly Klein. He continued to gain valuable experience as a photo editor for projects for Hachette Filapacchi Magazines, Esquire Magazine, projects for Kenneth Cole Productions and for Sony Style, Neiman Marcus catalogue and Time Life custom publishing, all seeding his ideas and creativity for his fine art photo-based works.

Benjamin’s various furniture and fine art works have been featured in numerous national and regional publications and digital press, including Interior Design, V Magazine, Whirl, Clear, City magazine, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, washingtonpost.com, and Glass Review.
