Benji Alexander Palus


The Work of Benji Alexander Palus – a Study of the Human Female


     The work of Benji Alexander Palus explores the diverse complexities of feminine nature with an

eclectic array of mood, color, setting and light, giving each painting a feel as unique as the women he

studies. Says the artist, " Every woman has an infinite sea of emotions and facets to her personality. She can be a completely different person from one moment to the next and yet it is all her. This is what I try to capture; not the overall view of womanhood, but specific moments that occur once and are never repeated."


     Palus' work is strongly based in reality, creating a natural, un-posed feel. Even his portraits have a candid quality that allows the viewer to connect with the subjects by humanizing them, while at the same time expressing the artist's reverence for the beauty that he finds in them. "My models are my best friends. Every painting is an exploration of the qualities in them that I so deeply love, that make them so beautiful.Without love, the work would be nothing, just as without their muse, the artist is nothing."

--written by Kaol Springman

Artist Bio

     Benji Alexander Palus was born in 1972 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is one of five siblings, having two older brothers and two younger sisters. Noticing early his interest in drawing and colors, his parents had him tested for artistic ability when he was two years old. Testing at a very high level, Palus wasencouraged from this young age to explore and develop his artistic nature.


     Benji Alexander Palus is a self-taught artist, having no formal training in fine art or the medium of oils, in which he exclusively works. Palus has only recently begun his career as a professional artist, with his first gallery showing at Studio 831 in New Orleans in 2010. He is also a member of the prestigious International Guild of Realism, and proud to be a part of Realism painting's growing contemporary revival.


     In 1999 Palus moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, where he currently resides in the city's French

Quarter. He continues to study the art of painting in the Realist style, ever increasing the depth of his

knowledge and the richness of his work through his study of the human female.
