About the Artist
Ben Kenning is a painter and mixed media artist from Newcastle, Australia. He acquired an Advanced Diploma of Fine Art at Newcastle Art School (2007), a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle, NSW (2011) and a Bachelor of Fine Art Honors from the University of Newcastle, NSW (2014).
Ben’s work primarily focuses on drawing, painting, and mixed media on canvas and paper. Although technical, his work is exceedingly intuitive and chance driven – it relies on a process of continual layering, creation and destruction, and works towards the resolution of an idea. His art is a vehicle for self-expression, granting him the freedom to be inquisitive, absorb his surroundings, and pursue his curiosities.
