During his late teens, Benini painted landscapes and still lifes in a traditional style. By 1965, his painting evolved into large-scale, monochromatic renderings of the human figure. From 1975, he alternated large-scale representations of the rose and dream-like paintings with strong symbolist content. He concentrated on the symbol of the roses for more than 20 years. During the mid-1980s, his work took a sharp turn toward geometry and the mathematical sciences. At present, he is continuing his explorations in this field. To date, Benini has had 150 one-man exhibitions, primarily in universities, public institutions and museums.
