Ben Grasso (b. 1979): Growing up in the 1980’s in Cleveland, Ohio Ben Grasso was a witness to the decline of a once booming city that had thrived in the first half of the 20th century. Grasso’s paintings reflect the state of blight that engulfed the Ohio city and his childhood. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received his BFA in painting in 2003 from the Cleveland Institute of Art, an MFA in painting from Hunter CUNY in 2006 and studied at the Edinburgh College of Art in 2002.  His work has been featured in ARTFORUM, Artnet, and Harpers Magazine to name a few.
