Ben Saginaw is an artist and musician working and living in Detroit, MI. Saginaw has been producing work and painting murals in the Michigan area for the past 13 years. His 2 dimensional work is often characterized by contrast, simplicity and an appreciation for negative space. Recently his murals have transitioned into statements and phrases. They are an exercise in emphasizing the power and importance of words and the beauty of simple text and layout displayed larger than life. He is also the co-founder of the collective Hamtramck Ceramck, a multidisciplinary group of artists using ceramics as a vehicle for collaboration.
