Benedict Flanagan, illustrator and painter. Benedict’s paintings are studies of colour and light inspired by the everyday life he finds around him. Whether it is landscape en plein air, still life or figure, it is important it is painted from life. Pieces aim to capture the subtlety in the interaction of light and atmosphere on the subject. As a professional illustrator Benedict’s is trained as an alumni of Falmouth University, UAL and academically trained at London Fine Art Studios. The progression of this experience has informed the artist’s primary focus as the artist continues to learn and be inspired by recreating the effects of light, atmosphere and colour.
