Staffordshire artist, Ben Riley was born in 1981. From the age at which he could pick up a pencil, Ben started to draw and paint, his flare becoming apparent. He went on to study art from the age of 14, experimenting, and thus developing his own original styles and techniques. This made him stand out from his fellow students.
In 2002, Ben became a professional artist, selling his iconic, eye catching portrait paintings worldwide, gaining notoriety for the way he captured the mood, soul and character of the subject. With celebrity collectors of Ben's commissioned pieces and several features on television and in the press, Ben continues his career as an accomplished artist.
'The human face is like a landscape of details, showing a lifelong adventure. Each one is very different, with features that tell their own storey. There are the eyes being the gate way to the soul, the mouth being the outlet of verbal expression, the lines being the tell tale signs of the kind of life and mileage in which the subject has or hasn't mounted up and everything in between. Each feature is a subject in its self, capturing the individual mood, feeling character and sheer existence' - Ben Riley.
