Robert Bennett Jr. was born in East Syracuse, New York in 1992. In 2014 he received a Bachelors of Fine Art in Sculpture with a minor in Public Engagement from Maine College of Art. He currently resides in Portland, Maine.

Bennett’s projects range in material and scale, from a large scale installation taking over an entire room to a detailed study of the mouth. All of his projects present moments of solitude for his audience. Bennett’s current work explores the way the physical body changes over time.
