"So many beautiful captures in his photostream that it could take hours to view all of them and just aspire to the beauty of all those splendid places and all those wonderful moments. A real hunter for that perfect image and also a real artist in my humble opinion.
You've gained my admiration since the first time i've seen and invited one of your photos and i thank you for sharing without any questions all your masterpieces!

"What can one say about Ben Heine that hasn't already been expressed by those that are fortunate enough to see his work? Only that I love him as a person, too. He is, at times, my muse, at times my hope and always my dear friend."

"Ben's creations are amazing! He is so original. Looking over his photos is a joy."
October 28th, 2009
"When I look at Bens photos i'm going into a surreal world of beauty and art. I feel so inspiret by his work, and love to look at his photos.
P.s. Try to look at his set Kenay and Animals, cause they are amazing!"
October 18th, 2009
"I have known Ben's work for few years now. I love his political cartoons, his paintings, his portraits, his pictures. Ben is a very talented artist and a very vesitile one. He loves to cast his eyes and hands on everything he encounters. He loves to deconstruct and transform the objects in his possession and he uses his fantasy to make them live again. If I was allowed to say one thing only about Ben I would say this: Ben is like a magician. He firmly believes the world is magic. He loves to grasp this magic quality of the world. Everytime. Nothing can stop him. He will surprise me and you again!"
October 13th, 2009
"A visit to Ben's photostream is quite an experience! It is like a window
to the world, colored in vivid fields of wheat from Africa, a misty
forest in Poland, perhaps a colorful gondola ride in Venice, who knows?
It's never the same each time. He takes time to thank us all for
visiting and takes part in his groups, passing on what he knows.
He takes time to pay respect to those who passed on and his images reflect a good soul.
Thanks for letting us visit your photostream and keep creating
beauty in your world Ben!"

"I was surprised to look at certain pictures in some murals. Coincidentally, all were from the same author, despite the diversity of murals. Ben Heine's perspective is neat, dignified appreciate, very high quality. "My Wants To Sail Boat" is an example to highlight, has a depth and an exquisite texture. Your art impress and captive. I am sincerely grateful for enjoy their style : )"

Esther Kirby says:
"Ben is one of my favorite artists as he is versatile, imaginative, creative and outspoken. His prolific talent and profound mind has molded him into a very credible, earnest and scarce journalist and artist to be found anywhere.
It all started when he “Favorite” one of my creations at Deviantart and out of curiosity I decided to check out his gallery. His gallery is superb, tasteful and truly mind blowing as they depicts on what’s going on with our current world and the political issues.
Ben Heine is truly a profound, philosophical and talented artisan!"
