Ben Tankard

Ben is an award winning artist who resides in the beautiful Blue Mountains of NSW. A regular finalist in many art competitions he recently won the Hawkesbury Art Prize.
Ben's abstract paintings which depict the cover of Popular Penguin paperbacks and Monopoly boards are highly sort after.  The paintings are distorted representations of the subject matter, transformed with thick brushstrokes and often random lettering, retaining the essence of the original but also becoming something new.
