It’s been more than a year since we last donned a sensible wide-brimmed hat and slathered on the Factor 50 to pay Ben Sanders a visit in sunny Los Angeles. The artist just displayed a host of new work at his enigmatically-named exhibition Graves of Craving, in his home city; works bursting with colour and texture, strange shapes, odd details and no end of character. While the paintings have a charming silliness to them Ben has a serious visual sensibility, and his talents have now also been turned to a new collective Those People.
