Ben Snowden

Part of the New Light Prize Exhibition 2020

Ben Snowden is a contemporary artist based in Bradford. His work explores the relationships and ideas between subject and emotion, combining visceral energy with experience through painting. Inspired by the natural world, poetry and memory, he uses the language of abstraction to create work that emphasises on mood and expression to determine the overall feeling of the paintings.

Ben has been a finalist in the National Open Art Competition (2015), the Platform Open Arts Competition (2015 & 2016), the Black Swan Arts Open (2016), The Bath Open Art Prize (2019), Ferens Art Gallery Open Exhibition (2019) and the Bradford Open Exhibition 2019. He has exhibited across the UK and Europe.
