About Elton Bennett
Silkscreen printing is a revolutionary medium, allowing artists to inexpensively produce multiples of quality, original prints, therefore being accessible to a much larger audience. This was the belief of American artist Elton Bennett, who produced an impressive number of works throughout the 20th century. He desired to bring art to the everyday man, so he devoted himself to silkscreen printing, never selling a piece for more than 15 dollars. His artwork is a continually changing blend of bright colors and dramatic landscapes, with the Pacific Northwest playing a huge role in his imagery. Having been a fisherman himself, imagery involving ships, waves, and rainy scenes are featured heavily in his work. Light dances across the leaves of intricately designed plants in his magnified botanical prints, and the sun brilliantly creates a bold, light and dark contrast in his seascape prints. You can find a wide variety of Elton Bennett prints on eBay, where collectors sell originals, signed copies, and more. An Elton Bennett silkscreen is an excellent way to get a unique glimpse of the Pacific Northwest.
