Ben Timmins

Kingfisher by Ben Timmins

Blending wood grains, realistic forms and lines Ben Timmins produces photo realistic images that speak to the viewer on multiple levels: birds float serenely through spaces invoking contemplation and alluding to a deeper sense of reality, while the ‘void’ of the wood grain produces a peculiar calmness.

Painting mainly in oils from his Golden Bay studio, Ben is a well established emerging artist having won the People’s Choice Signature Award at the New Zealand art awards three consecutive times.

Ben has studied Visual Communication and Fine Art at Auckland Unitec, however with twenty two years of painting experience, he believes self directed experimentation and research has served him best. Ben has been involved in many group shows and solo shows over the last ten years and has Artwork with the James Wallace Art Collection.
