Benjamin Mitchley is an internationally successful South African fine artist, illustrator, animator and augmented reality artist born on January 1, 1967, in the Free State. He studied fine arts at Vaal University of Technology and Tshwane University of Technology from 1985 to 1987. Technology plays an essential role in his creative process. Augmented reality has made it possible to view his artwork differently. The introduction of AR with the Artivive app has allowed the viewer to use a mobile device to bring his artwork to life. This medium has led him on a new journey with exhibitions in collaboration with the Artivive company, bringing him international attention in Spain, Miami, New York, Canada, South Korea, Austria and Germany.
