Ben Edmunds (b. 1994, Norwich) lives and works in London, UK. He graduated from Wimbledon College of Arts in 2016 with a BA in Painting, and from Royal College of Art in 2018 with an MA in Painting, where he won the annual Hine Award for Painting.
Tugging at contemporary manifestations of mythology and systems of belief, his work is chiefly characterised by its combining the “holy”, almost archaic, formal modes of Modernist Abstract Expressionism, colour field painting and Minimalism, with the highly stylised and contemporary accents of extreme sports and fashion.
Upcoming solo exhibitions include Nicoletti Contemporary, London, Unveil, Hong Kong (in partnership with KaiKai Kiki Gallery). Recent solo exhibitions include Where should I go from here? at Kaikai Kiki Gallery, Tokyo (where he was invited to exhibit by Takashi Murakami), Art Basel Hong Kong and FRIEZE Art Fair, New York with KaiKai Kiki Gallery.
