Artist Ben Riley creates mesmerizing couple portraits on a 30'' x 30'' canvas with crushed vinyl — a wonderful and original gift idea for this upcoming Valentine's Day. The technique is unique to Ben, as he is the only artist in the world who grinds down records into dust and grit. The composition is dazzling and one of a kind, Ben punctures the piece with the larger shards to create texture and shadows. Throughout the creative process, no additional tools like pens, pencils, charcoal are used.
Naming it 'Valentine's Vinyl,' this will be the first time in the artist's career that he will be making a couple's portrait with their love soundtrack. This will ultimately create an authentic "visual representation of the music they love." The end result will be a mesmerizing and unique present, with an emotionally supercharged message.
