About Ben

Ben King is an artist living and working in the New Forest near Bournemouth, in England. He is hoping to become a fresh face in the local and international art scene. Primarily a painter, Ben creates ethereal and enchanting landscapes, which are directly influenced by experience and emotions. He explores the importance of physically experiencing the environment by constantly walking through familiar and unfamiliar locations; the comfortable routes he always walks, the familiar streets of a town, or investigating new paths, and travelling to destinations new to him. Ben has exhibited in group and solo shows, and in October 2011, he completed his challenge to do a painting every single day for an entire year.
