Ben Elliot lives and works in Paris, France. His initial projects showed a desire to envision the artist as a brand, with a strong identity and storytelling. In 2016, he organized a party under his name, gathering some 500 faces and creatives of the new Parisian generation. In 2017, Ben Elliot joined forces with the water brand Voda Voda to create a bottle, once again under his name. He then collaborated with several digital brands and mobile applications such as Perfect365, Meitu Inc., or Tinder, for the production of other works. This approach was extended in 2018 when the artist made an installation that looked like a concept store bringing together more than 45 leading brands in the fields of tech, sportswear, smart-food, and virtual entertainment, in order to create a comprehensive statement of the most advanced lifestyles indicating the path towards the augmented human. In 2019, Ben Elliot renewed his interest in hybrid projects bringing together groups of individuals from various backgrounds. He shared his solo show with other creatives, artists and public figures interested in the culture of influence on social networks: virtual identity, dematerialization of the relationship with the other, need for popularity, and the economic systems that result from it.
His ongoing projects include the launch of his own social cryptocurrency $BENELLIOT and the creation of a virtual pet named My Little Friend, while exploring more traditional forms like paintings with a process based on the use of data and algorithms.
