Artist Statement

Although I haven’t been fortunate enough to experience a Sing for Hope Piano firsthand, I have been aware of the program for a while and have seen videos and pictures of them lighting up faces and bringing people together. I recognize that the positive impact the pianos have on people is tremendous, my style is playful and bright and if selected, I believe that my work will contribute to that sense of togetherness and joy that I have seen and heard the Sing for Hope Pianos bring.

About the Artist

Benjamin Waldow (Bendow) is an interdisciplinary artist working in painting, printmedia and sculpture. His multi-layered, character-driven line work is inspired and informed by ancient cultures, architecture and the quest to achieve a sense of balance through seemingly chaotic forms. He is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently based in Los Angeles.
