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

38 stories
Porcelan doll face that is cracked and looking down and with the closed mouth, looking scared.
A person is shown with just their two hands. One hand is grasping a whisk and whisking the eggs in a clear glass bowl while the other hand is grasping the side of the bowl for stability. There is a small six space cardboard carton in front of the bowl with six open, cracked eggs.
A dark space with a thick chain, adult hand size around big, taught leading down to a dry open, all dark surrounding, level below with an off of view light illumination of light above the chain.

Moony's Blogs

21 stories
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.”
An image of a spinning amusement ride, circle shaped, flowing around in a circle on the side of use. The aperture is slowed to allow the colors of the ride to blend and bleed in the circle motion. The colors are various and multiple to emphasis use within this philosophy blog post.

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.
