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 has had a lot of success in recent years with his abstract paintings which depict the covers of Popular Penguin paperbacks and Monopoly boards. 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.
Currently at Clayfire Gallery we have available for purchase "Unpopular Penguin 418" "Monopoly Melbourne" and "Monopoly Daylesford". All original artworks by Ben.
