This article introduced me to Scottish artist Benjamin Creme.
Mr. Creme, who died in 2016 at 93, was born in Scotland and started painting at age 13. At 16 he dropped out of school to focus on his art… Inspired by modernism, Mr. Creme was known for his abstract expressionist work, employing vibrant colors and geometric shapes.
His biography and work can be seen here.
