Ben Kelly Paintings from the acclaimed Macclesfield based artist, have been taking the art world by storm, with each exhibition he has held-including his latest ‘The World of Ben Kelly‘-which, sold out before the opening night; being ‘the’ biggest selling show ever by a northern artist, with a large waiting list for his sought after works. A phenomenon -already-in the northern art scene, his enviable reputation has spread throughout the United Kingdom as art lovers clamber to purchase a sought after Ben Kelly painting not only for admiration of the work but also as a sound financial investment for the future, which is part of an ever growing movement to buy art as a positive alternative asset to property, bonds or equities.
Paintings by rising star Ben Kelly incorporate a strong figurative style with the accent on everyday life scenes that are sometimes based on real places and events to imaginative concepts that Ben has formulated in his mind. Thought provoking, attractive, vibrant and quirky, are just some of the adjectives used to describe Ben Kelly’s paintings and are the basis for his undoubted talent in the way he fractures light within a complex series of paint layers.
Ben Kelly Paintings are a culmination of a journey the artist has taken to reach the pinnacle of his talents. Having trained at London’s renowned Central St Martins College, Ben combines his painting with work as a senior lecturer at Wolverhampton University. In 2006 his painting “The Final Whistle” beat over 800 entrants to win the prestigious Painting in Art prize that has been won previously by none other than L.S Lowry in 1953.
For the past 12 months, Ben Kelly has been painting for his biggest ‘one-man’ show at Clark Art Gallery in Hale, where 94 of his paintings and drawings have recently been featured at a private view evening. An absolute success, all his work was sold out with paintings limited to one purchase per buyer such is the demand for ‘the’ Northern artist of his generation: Ben Kelly.
The World of Ben Kelly runs until the 31st October at Clark Art Ltd
