The Portraiture Paradox

BY BEN FRISCH
@ VOL 2 ON APR 11, 2019

Ben Frisch has been an artist since the age of 2. He sold his first drawing to a classmate in grade 6 and he was hooked. Art as a career can be a challenging path to take especially as a portrait artist and that pursuit dominated his 20’s. Although Ben had many ups and downs, that dream never came to fruition. His passion for portraiture was put on a shelf and now at 36, he has not made art for a long time. It’s sad to think that dream may have died but in hindsight, Ben now sees the paradox that plagued him. This is the story of Ben's career as a portrait artist and why he was doomed to fail.
