Benish Qayyum

Benish Qayyum is a self-taught expressionist painter and full-time psychology student. She has been painting ever since she can remember and loves experimenting with different styles of art. Her paintings are mostly acrylic on canvas but she also enjoys delving into a variety of mediums like soft pastels, oil paint, and new media art.

I am extremely fascinated by the subjective human experience and love incorporating themes of mysticism and morality into my pieces. I utilize concepts from nature and the duality of life and death to create dreamlike pieces that allows the viewer think deeply about the self. I am inspired by other artists, poetry, and conversations with people and often delve into being creative whenever I can such as through writing poetry or making art.
