Master Oil Painter

Wes Benson

Wes Benson is a Kansas-City-based oil painter. Wes has an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City and a bachelors degree in art history from KU, the University of Kansas. He works out of his studio in the Bauer building in the Crossroads district of Kansas City.


Wesley’s artwork hangs on walls and in private collections across the U.S. Wes stubbornly paints whatever he wants to paint. His artistic philosophy is guided exclusively by the daily visual input of his own life. His work is intended to be semi-autobiographical, euphoric, luminous, and optimistic.
