BenjamIndestrucible Design Housewww.ArtPal.com/BDH
I'm Benjamin Harms, and I am a paint addict.
I began playing with acrylic paints a few years ago, and quickly found that painting was a calming and therapeutic activity for me. I'm very high strung and prone to strong emotions. When I am in love, or going through a breakup, or dealing with pain, my art levels me out in a way that nothing else can.
I moved home to Alabama from Houston on Christmas of 2015, with a very heavy heart. I had lost my way, and didn't remember what it felt like to be alive. For years, I chose unhealthy vices to help me cope with traumatic personal events. It was not until I came home that I realized all of my mistakes. I hope that my work conveys the sorrow, love, and eventual hope that I have felt while creating my collection.
The name "BenjamIndestructible Design House" plays on a few different details. Music was my first passion. The song "Indestructible" by Robyn is brilliant and spoke volumes to me when I first heard it. She talks about loving with all of her heart, despite being a little broken inside, and doing so in a way that fosters love rather than letting her past hinder it.
"I'm gonna love you like I've never been hurt before. I'm gonna love you like I'm indestructible. Your love is ultra-magnetic and it's taking over; this is hardcore, and I'm indestructible."
My initials are "BDH" for Benjamin Duane Harms... having been named Benjamin after my maternal grandfather and Duane after my paternal grandfather. So, BenjamIndestructible Design House is tough, full of love, rich in family history, and it is me. I am BenjamIndestructible.
I would LOVE to hear what you have to say about my work... the good, the bad, the critical, insights, feelings, you name it. I have never gotten a lot of feedback on my collection, and I'm hoping to change that by giving you my email address:
I look forward to hearing your feedback.
