Benny Sweeney is a contemporary visual artist specializing in large scale collage pieces. He is primarily interested in conflict resolution through shape and colour, often using motifs, symbols and text to punctuate co-existing tension within a confined space.
His studio practice is shaped by the principle of 'sampling', transforming ready-made materials through a process of selection and filtering. The work is rooted in the idea of making connections to other, often unconnected, worlds.
He currently lives and works in Belfast.
