Ben Kendall Artist at The Gallery Studio Ringstead

Ben Kendall


Ben Kendall is a contemporary landscape painter. He loves creating vivid, semi-abstract representations of the coast, countryside and skylines around him. His work draws on impressionist influences with a modern twist, playing with fragmented light, reflections and bold lines to create texture and depth. Ben works by building and scraping away layers of acrylic paint before using mixed media ranging from ink to charcoal and crayons to add detail and a touch of chaos. His use of colour is bold.
