The force is definitely strong with Ben Russo.
Ben Russo is a 10-year-old boy with an incredible talent. He makes detailed mosaic portraits of famous characters and celebrities out of hundreds of Rubik’s Cubes. To create his truly astonishing works of art, he uses different colors of the Rubik’s Cubes and mixes them up to achieve the desired pattern that will make up his portrait.
Ben also is severely dyslexic. Dyslexia is a learning disability that impacts one’s ability to read and write. It’s even estimated that 1 in 10 people suffer from the learning disability. Each person with dyslexia will have their own strengths and challenges. For Ben, his strength is high spatial intelligence and artistic ability.
Ben does not let his dyslexia hold him back. In fact, he considers his dyslexia to be his SUPERPOWER!
For this particular work of art, Ben scrambled and assembled 750 Rubik’s Cubes to create an accurate portrait of Darth Vader.
Ben has also done portraits of Drake, Jason Momoa, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, SpongeBob, Bart Simpson, Mark Wahlberg, Hugh Jackman, and Ryan Reynolds.
He uses his art to raise awareness for Dyslexia. To learn more about Dyslexia, you can click the links below.
