Andrew or Benjamin?
On my countless journeys through art blogs I was introduced to two young artists. First of all I had to admit that they can paint, second – I was a bit confused who painted what (at the first glance their subjects, the way they are painted and even some of the colour combinations these artists use are so alike!). In the end I decided I had to have a closer look.
Have you seen anything painted by Andrew Salgado or Benjamin Cohen? Both artists are very popular at the moment and their paintings can be found on the Saatchi Gallery website.
