Ben Graham

Artist

Making something out of nothing

Ben has fully dedicated himself to his art practice since 2018 and has recently gone full time as a professional artist. His work often demonstrates great respect towards material, saving off-cuts and throw-away items, repurposing them as works of art to be enjoyed for years to come. 

He exhibits across the UK and Sweden, with work in collections across the globe.

 

Hemisphere I

Reclaimed plywood

approx
25cm
22cm
20cm

The work is a truly three-dimensional sculpture as it can support itself in many positions and still appear intentional. The surface pattern effect created by the layers of wood accentuates the movement even more and the work appears to be fluid like drapery in motion.

Each piece of the Industrial Driftwood series is made from reclaimed plywood, if not reclaimed this material would have gone to landfill or been incinerated. Re-use and cherishing material is a fundamental part of the process in Ben Graham’s practice.
