Ben The Illustrator

Celebrating positivity in bold colour & bringing light into the everyday

Ben The Illustrator is a master of gradient: portraying detailed worlds with a subtle colour palette. Architectural forms and horizons recur throughout his work creating a vast array of stylish landscapes; using shadow and graphic shapes to portray the mechanics of the metropolis. Exploring recognisable symbols with exaggerated forms, Ben has a unique way of balancing graphic shape with illustrative line.

These slick forms create a positive and exciting insight into his head. Ben The Illustrator works on all manner of project and commission and his influence from his past work as an animator can be seen in his work. With early influences by 50s and 60s pop art, Ben controls his illustrations in a similar form which undoubtedly creates his unique style.

Bold, colourful, graphic. I try and keep things clean, fresh and positive.
