Dreaming While Awake: Where Moony Interviews Artists About Their Art, Development, and Being a Human

My friends!

In this recent Dreaming While Awake, I had a trip through the experience in fine arts provided by the Fine Artist Ben Kator!

Ben is a unique fine artist who is skilled in various artistic mediums; ranging from line drawings, portraits, and painting in the abstract. To each piece that Ben brings forth, he applies a level of professionalism others envy. The color association, lighting, shading, and emotional depth in each piece are overwhelming for an observer. He can accomplish this because Ben does not just create art — he is applying himself in each piece.

In addition to Ben’s amazing skills, he is also a gallery manager for The Blockchain Gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At this gallery, visitors can check out Ben’s art as well as other art being presented.

Below, you can have a close-up look at some of Ben’s own creations.

Moony's Poems

40 stories
Two young children, one draping an arm over the other, both facing away from the camera, walking down a dirt/gravel road to a distance not established. Upon the sides of the road are brush that are bristlely, short, and dry grass.
Porcelan doll face that is cracked and looking down and with the closed mouth, looking scared.

Moony's Blogs

22 stories
A person, how hands are hidden in front of them, stands just before an open lane at a bowling alley. All pins are set for a fresh take at the bowl. Neon lights are all around, the room feels dark and cool. It is ready to be played.
An individual is holding these multi-sided paper shaped three dimensional start in their hands while many others are floating all around them. The star being held is covering the individual’s face. This is to say “have imagination and let it flow from you.”

Motivation Series

6 stories
A collection of natural images such as the ground of a forest, desert extending higher through the natural layers of our existence (moving through the trees, to the mountains, sky, then stars) showing our place in this reality of current.

Writing something, somewhere, lost in some thought, figuring things out, and purposefully flaky. I don't do conformity or expectations; so keep them low.
