September Art5 Series '19
Riley’s Rock n Roll Circus
Art5 Gallery, Brighton
19th - 25th of September 2019
Born in 1981, Ben Riley is an accomplished British artist, based in Staffordshire – merging the boundaries of art & music. Since his early life, music had played a significant role in the journey to professional artist. Studying the academics of art since his teenage years, Riley has established several signatures, which include concept art, and crossover techniques.
Since 2002, Ben has been able to deliver his art professionally to an international audience focusing on iconic & stimulating portraiture worldwide, gaining notoriety in the capture of mood, soul and character of a subject. With an accolade of celebrity & professional collectors to his books, Ben’s commissioned pieces have featured proudly throughout media, television and press worldwide.
“The human face is a landscape of detail, showing its lifelong adventure. Each one unique to the rest, the story changes each time holding a multitude of twists and turns. The eyes, the mouth, the skin, the tell-tale signs of the life and journey – captured in the peaks and troughs of the lines, just like the vinyl record. Each feature is its own song, each subject – its own genre, and living phonograph of mood, feeling, character and sheer existence… beautiful…”
ART5 Gallery is a strong supporter of Ben’s work in England, having him as a resident artist since 2018. We are thrilled to be hosting his show entitled Riley’s Rock n Roll Circus. The exhibition is free and will run from Thursday September 19th until the 25th.
