Dancing with Hans
Acrylic on Canvas, Mixed Media




For the past twenty five years, Benjamin Junta has been studying and creating art in various parts of the United States, while maintaining a homebase in California. He works with a variety of media - oils and acrylics, spray paint, stencils, collage, found objects, tree bark, clothing, street detritus, photographs, digital media, and written words. A graduate of Occidental College, his initial training was classical in nature, working from still lifes and nude models, while his mid career work lies in the wide realms of abstraction and landscape painting. His artistic study began with Squeek Carnwath at the University of California, Davis. He then moved on to Occidental College in Los Angeles, CA, where he took a BA in 1988. His early efforts were landscapes largely influenced by Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn, and then by his study with the noted American painters Wolf Kahn (in the Hans Hoffman tradition of "push-pull"), Bernard Chaet, and the teachings of Charles Hawthorne as studied at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provinctown, MA. Mr. Junta also studied with the British painter John Walker, as well as with American still life painter William Bailey. Mr Junta has exhibited on the East Coast, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Los Angeles, CA, Santa Barbara, CA, as well as at Stanford University and other locations in Northern California. His works can also be seen at www.benjunta.com and at www.landseascapes.blogspot.com He currently lives in Hermosa Beach, CA.
