Presenting an exhibition of works from contemporary artist Ben Allen.
Free-spirited UK based artist Ben Allen is most well-known for his controversial pop paintings. This collection brings together Ben's love affair with the female form in art and his trademark graffiti style backgrounds. Ben has captured beautifully the strength, vulnerability and sensuous attributes of women in these original paintings. They are mixed media on canvas and of various sizes.
Using a ‘collage style of unlikely juxtapositions, the dynamic paintings are a complex mash-up of popular culture that critiques the day-to-day dull and mundane, challenge the media’s view on sexuality and inspire a sense of freedom. Inspired by underground surfing and skateboard street scenes, Ben’s art manages to capture the elusive zeitgeist and has attracted clients including Vans, Levi's, Converse, Virgin, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen and the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
