Benjamin Murphy is a visual artist who creates artworks using the esoteric medium of electrical tape. Innocence, fragility, obscenety, beauty, despair, chaos, love, vanity, and vice are all frequently occurring themes. Whilst 90% of what ben does is in the studio, he sometimes likes to venture outside and create artworks that scale buildings. As well as creating these artworks out of tape, Benjamin also likes to paint and he is a frequent collaborator.
