Ben Ashton is a London-based artist specializing in hyperrealist figurative painting and illusionary immersive installations. His style of painting draws upon old master painting techniques that are set against digital glitches and manipulations. Combined, these elements produce often unsettling yet compelling works.
His work often revolves around art historical themes that he re-presents to the viewer, subverting the original context. He uses the history of art as an index that he can plunder at will, appropriating poses and themes to give his work a sense of timelessness.
We are overflowing with pride to be showing a taste of Ben’s work at our first group show of 2019. And! We can’t wait to share news of a larger project we are working towards with this incredibly talented artist.
