Ben Winspear is a Melbourne based artist who works in oil, watercolour, graphite and more recently sculpture. He has been painting professionally for over fifteen years and has held several successful solo exhibitions.
Ben paints a wide range of subject matter; anything that inspires him at the time, but his love for the Australian landscape is something that stands out. His work runs the full spectrum from representational through to abstraction, frequently combining both.
He is a multi-award winning artist in Bendigo and surrounding districts including the Castlemaine James Farrell Self Portrait Prize and A.M.E. Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize.
Ben has facilitated the execution of several major art projects in schools – and projects in conjunction with local government and private departments – including The City of Greater Bendigo, Coliban Water, NCCA, Department of Primary Industries.
Ben is also a tutor at the Victorian Artists’ Society, and offers private tuition also. He is a tutor who is in high demand throughout Melbourne and Country Victoria and has a great desire to see people flourish in their journey as an artist.
