A Solo Exhibition by Ben Oakley

About

Ben Oakley has been asked to exhibit at renowned Tattoo Studios The Circle London in the heart of Soho, a Quality fitting venue for these new set of paintings. Always innovative, always unique, Ben Oakley keeps us guessing as he diversifies once again to continue his development of the ‘Pinhead Paintings'. Using original portrait photography and fashion/media prints, he hand tints then stencils over the flesh of the subject using everyday safety pins and spray paint with fascinating results. Though still instantly recognisable, each portrait takes on a peculiar almost Alien/ tribal feel that transports them out of their original era and setting, into a more fitting modern day environment. All the paintings are presented in original worn frames to evoke the thought that they once sat on your Grandparents kitchen wall and no one batted an eye lid.
