Benjamin Tellie is a contemporary American artist and art educator.  Benjamin is a Visual Art Teacher at the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, MD.  Born in Wilkes-Barre PA, he earned a BA in Studio Art from Temple University in Philadelphia, and an MA in Art Education from Columbia University.  In his printmaking work, Benjamin creates narratives and images about military soldiers lives and explores the psychology behind their experiences.  Throughout his work, Benjamin investigates themes of abandonment, isolation, lost identity, and the temporality behind war.

In 2008, Benjamin created the "Company L" print series, a large body of printmaking work that is a conversation about his grandfather's (Joseph B. Tellie Sr.) involvement in World War II.  Benjamin uses stories, shared between him and his grandfather, as a source of inspiration to explore army soldiers personal experiences of separation from their home lives.  He comments upon Joseph's service and contributions in the European theater of operations with Company L of the 309th Regiment, 78th Infantry Division.  Benjamin's prints are dedicated to the battles Joseph fought in, mostly notably, the Rhineland, Ardennes, and Central European campaigns, and the Battle of the Bulge.
