Ben Phillips creates mixed media art pieces inspired, predominantly, by the vibrant metropolis of London.

Ben uses bright, vivid colour palettes, coupled with expertly portrayed reflections to convey the movement and energy of the city.

It is only in the last three years that Phillips has begun to refine his medium, working in collage predominantly, but complemented with dipping pens, markers, oil pastels alongside bold additions of acrylic paints and, interestingly, regular household satins.

Admiring the likes of Hannah Höch when it comes to the creation of texture through collage, Phillips uses bold shapes married with cuttings from newspapers, fashion magazines and design magazines to add interest and details to buildings, streets, skylines and street ‘furniture’.
