WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF BENJAMIN KLEMENCIC
My name is Benjamin Klemencic and I am working as an artist in Germany.
I am interested in the female nude and the landscape.
The landscape does not serve as a document of human cruelty to nature, but as visual enjoyment - as a positive creative design.
I pick up the spirit of Romanticism - with its longing for the fantastic, beautiful and fairytale - and create places of safety and refuge.
Similarly, in the nude beauty is in the foreground. For to sound out the limits of what is morally and aesthetically acceptable seems completely unnecessary to me in the Digital Age with its Rule 34 “If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions”.
And rarely does it bother me to point out the sustainability of contemporary human lunacy.
But here, too, I am firm in the belief in the healing promise of art.
