Benni Shumlin (they/them) is an artist from Vermont, based in Brooklyn.
Their work, in leather, furniture design, and wearables, examines how hierarchies of taste, sensuality, and subversion manifest in physical form. Their creations seek to embody experiences of individuality, pleasure, sensuality, and an exploration of ugliness. Benni hopes that the work connects viewers with their freakish sides.
Ben’s work has been seen in Vogue, Complex, and on social accounts of depop, Grailed, hidden.ny, liljupiterr, and more
