Miguel Endara + Finding Benjaman

Benjaman Kyle - miguel endara - surface and surfaceI posted about the stippling portrait Miguel Endara did for his father a few months ago but I saw this yesterday on ‘This is Colossal’. After watching a screening of the documentary, Miguel Endara created this portrait to raise funds for Benjaman Kyle who’s situation is explained in the trailer for a documentary below. In short a man now named Benjaman Kyle was found unconscious behind a Burger King in America in 2004, after suffering from amnesia he now has no recollection of his previous life and because he has no social security number or real name he cannot get a job or even stay in a homeless shelter. The reason behind the film and the print is to spread awareness for Benjaman’s plight and to help raise money through the sale of prints to support a petition to get him a new social security number.
