Ben Jeffery’s Biography

Ben was born in 1986 and grew up in Barnet, north London. Since his grandfather introduced him to the work of John Varley he always had a keen interest in art. He was a renowned 18th Century watercolour artist and is related to the Jeffery family.

He first realised he wanted to be an artist in secondary school, so a few classmates and him used to have bets to see who could draw the best portrait of someone. Furthermore he painted a portrait of his dad for a mock GCSE which got admired by the entire art class.

He continued to study Art to degree level and received a lot of guidance and advice throughout the years but his technique is mostly self taught. When studying Art at College and University, he was mainly left to his own devises.

He always wanted to paint with oils and come up with colourful detailed paintings, this wasn’t always well received by his tutors, but his classmates were always quite impressed with what Ben came up with. It’s a case of trial and error a lot of the time, trying new ways of controlling the paint, from there his style has evolved.

He normally works in two stages: he first paints the entire canvas in base colours. After it has dried, he paints a second layer, adding more and more detail. After he finishes a painting, he leaves it a day or so before look at it again, this helps Ben pick up on areas that need changing.

His work is fairly diverse, ranging from portraits to landscapes, in both pencil and oils. He loves working with vivid, bright colours to create a unique and modern style. He is huge Sci-fi movie fan and he loves special effects.
