Oliver Benoit is a Professor of Sociology in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at St. George’s University. Dr. Benoit holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from Brandeis University in the U.S.A. and an M.F.A. degree from Plymouth University, U.K. As an artist, his paintings are in oil, acrylic, and encaustic, which have been an act of political or social commentary. His stimulating, multi-layered works present challenging interactions between his powerful themes and the textures and colours which bring them forth. Oliver Benoit’s work’s emotional, intellectual, and aesthetic power is not without his sociological insight. Benoit’s paintings are found in private collections in many countries, including England and Scotland in the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Japan, and Israel, as well as on public display at Grenada Embassy in Washington, DC. U.S.A.; Grenada Development Bank, Grenada museum; Museum of Nature and Culture Convention of Biodiversity, Montreal, QC. Canada.
