Laura Benjamin is a New York artist recognized for her unique medium, Candy Wrapper Art. She manipulates the candy wrappers and their packaging to give color, form, movement and whimsy to her subjects, creating both a carnal delight and an exciting visual effect. The result is a nuanced iconography that is stimulated by the sensual delight of sweets. She was an art educator, a textile designer and a computer graphics instructor. Her work is in private and public collections.
