Ben Cowan was born and raised in Ann Arbor, MI by a creative and musical family. He received a BFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Indian University. His painting reached a turning point during a residency in Umbria, Italy with the exposure and study of its historic vistas. The visual landscape and character of his immediate surroundings has since remained an inspiration wherever he calls home.

Ben currently lives in Brooklyn, NY creating paintings based on personifying his neighbors’ stoops. His work has been shown throughout America and New York City, and is in many private collections including The Racquet Club of Chicago and The Renwick Hotel in NYC.
