Creative Advertising and Production Company, Self
Art has been a big part of my life. I studied digital media arts and illustration at Seneca College in Toronto. I pursued a career in fine arts for many years before landing in marketing and video production. I currently own my own business focused on creative advertising and video production for brands. My company is based out of Collingwood Ontario and I live in the nearby town of Thornbury with my wife (an art teacher), our 18-month-old son, and our dog Banksy (yes named after the street artist).

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.
