In ART SAFARI, Art Geek Ben Lewis travels the world in search of Great Contemporary Art - and art that might be great. A playful series of eight films that are both analytical adventures and adventurous analysis.

Stopping at nothing to probe the minds of the world's most interesting, imaginative and insane artists, Ben navigates bravely through the art world's phalanxes of dealers, collectors and critics - and in the process discovers extraordinary works of art.

Ben Lewis directs, presents and works as sound recordist and occasional artist’s assistant. The results are arts home movies – close, informal and laid back encounters with artists unlike anything else you've seen.

Ben scaled skyscrapers, brought sculptures to life, burgled houses, and absorbed copious amounts of French art theory in a determined effort to understand contemporary art. Through the series, he carries an exhibition by one artist around in his jacket pocket, is instructed by another to tell her what to do, rows with a third on camera and is finally tattooed alongside a pig in China, as a work of art naturally.
