Benjamin Pratt is a Midwest artist who resides in Sioux City, Iowa. He has formal training in both hand drafting and operating AutoCAD. As a visual artist, Ben uses Autocad as a sketchbook to draft out his technical, yet minimalistic paintings. Relying on AutoCAD’s many functions designed for exactness and speed, then takes his designs to the canvas in a “no-tape” execution of hand painting, which gives his paintings a very precise yet tactile quality.
