Ben Ark is a modern landscape artist living in the North West of England. Ben Ark's interest in art formed in the era when digital photography and darkroom technologies collided. These early experiences still have an impact in his arts practice today. His mixed media creations merge traditional painting techniques with contemporary practices such as digital painting.
Ben Ark's work is created using acrylic paint, watercolour, ink, digital mixed media collage (merging hand painted areas and elements of digital photographs), pigment prints, gels, pastes, resins and varnishes on wooden art panels.
