    The amount of detail going on here is incredible. They look like something out of an antique storybook.

    Such an amazing collection of work. The pics barely even do it justice – we saw the exhibition live at the Half Gallery in NYC and were blown away by the level of detail and beauty. Ben has incredible talent and gets better and better with each new show.

    I’m fortunate to have a limited print of Blatt’s hanging on my wall. Stunning in person! If you get the chance to own his art…take it.

    like beautiful naturalist expositions of Hieronymous Bosch’s world! I love the second! I want to be there!

    Was lucky enough to get a private tour of the show by Ben himself. It was a great show. Truly inspiring. Sucks for all those who missed it.

  • Katie

    Your work just keeps getting richer in detail and color, not to mention creativity. What a gift.

Photo by @davidg16er

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post).
