Art

Ben trained as a Fine Artist at Hampstead College and has worked for several years as an artist's assistant to Helen and Colin David (English Eccentrics). Select examples of works can be found below.

THE RED VELVET TREE OF LOVE


For The Red Velvet Tree of Love, Helen and Colin were commissioned by the V&A museum to create a Christmas tree for the lobby of the museum. Ben assisted with the construction of the tree, and prepared it for installation. Further details and a video documenting the work can be found on Helen and Colin's website - here.

GHOST INSTALLATION


For Ghost, Colin was commissioned to create a secret art installation within Anthony Horowitz's home, based on the M.C Etcher print "Convex and Concave". Ben assisted with the installation of the work, hand painting the floor as a 3D optical illusion and hanging the mural. Further details and a video documenting the work can be found on Colin's website - here.
