New Modern Artist Added

Ben Clarke (b. Ipswich, 1990) is painter and artist based in London. Ben grew up in Ipswich and moved to London in 2009, studying at the Byam Shaw School of Art (2009-10) and at the Slade School of Art (2010-present). Although primarily a painter whose works derive from drawings, Ben is interested in writing, music and community based projects. Earlier this year, Ben completed a series of paintings based on traditional English pub signs as well as a series of peasant-figures in rural landscapes. Ben is currently a student at the New York Studio School of Art in the United States. Ben paints in part of Phillip Guston's old studio. The Directors of William Gibbons Fine Art Ltd have identified Ben Clarke as a rising talent in the Art World and definitely one to follow.
