Ben Crawford

Born in Cork, Ireland, Ben graduated in 2007 with a BA in Fine Art. He now lives in northern New South Wales with his wife and daughter, painting from his studio situated on an organic banana plantation. The colours, textures, lines, exotic fauna and flora of the local countryside permeate his canvases. Although his paintings often rife on the landscape, they aren’t constrained by its traditions. Elements of surrealism and a semi- autobiographical narrative are also present in much of Ben’s body of work. In addition to these more figurative references, the abstract quality of paint itself informs a lot of the decision making in his painting process.
