    Benedict Hadley is a Prolific Polymath, Film Maker and Artist. His work focuses on the human spirit and it's connection to the creator and the subsequent reactions to stimuli in the built and natural environment that have taken form in works of film, painting, public art, fashion based sculpture and educational programs.

 

His work is vivid, visceral, complex and highly spiritual in origin. From Brooklyn, NY his practice currently maintains a theme that leverages a body of work of and about the culture of African American youth in the inner city and aims, in part, to speak to and for the inner city and it's at risk youth in particular in regards to empowering their role in their immediate community and society at large. By creating work, with, for and in the inner city he creates a tangible example and opportunity of engagement to these youth of what they can be, what their environment can be with their participation and how the work that they create can manifest economic value for themselves and their community. 

    

Benedict is a accomplished and respected film maker and editor whose work has been screened worldwide, namely at The Cannes Film Festival and New York Fashion Week and His commercial art and films includes work for JAY Z, Francis Ford Coppola, PBS, June Ambrose, John Ziesel, Aliya LeeKong and The Urban League amongst many others.
