Says Ben of this work: ” The title refers to the year I was born and also to my older brother who features in this painting. Looking back at those childhood days makes me think of the possibilities, life throws at you and how unpredictable growing up can be. This painting captures a moment in time when life is simple and innocent.”


Ben Crawford is a figurative painter. He mostly paints about his life, exploring the story telling possibilities of distorted memories and dreams. Surreal elements transform the landscapes he paints into somewhat mystical realms, bursting with colour and charged with mystery. Figures, architecture and landmarks drawn from his life imbue Ben’s paintings with a sense of narrative, anchoring his work tentatively to reality.
