Female Vulnerability As Art
Ben Tour's 'Electric Orphans' Paintings Show Troubled Women

I love the beautiful artworks of Toronto-born artist Ben Tour. He draws and paints these incredibly beautiful, yet troubled women. There is a dark mystique hidden in the expression of his characters. There’s an accuracy of detail where a vulnerability often emerges. Very enchanting.

Ben Tour draws inspiration from the streets using spray paint, graffiti and urban art references, but he also looks to masters of painting such as Bacon and Schiele.

His first solo exhibition in Toronto is called Electric Orphans and is on at the Meta Gallery until February 15.

Have a look at the video above for a tour de Ben Tour.
