Début Art are delighted to be the newly appointed representatives of collage and multi-media artist Ben Lewis Giles.
Since graduating from a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University, Ben has established his career as a freelance artist and illustrator in Norwich. His work is defined by his handmade collages, utilising antique and vintage materials. The collage often spills into other mediums such as sculpture, paint and illustration.
His work is inspired by many different things such as colour, nature, juxtaposition, children’s encyclopaedias, repetition and metamorphosis. Artistically speaking influences range from Bosch’s complex and surreal character filled landscapes, to the metamorphosing patterns of MC Escher.
Ben has focused on working on commercial commissions for several years, such as magazine editorials, fashion labels and advertising campaigns. He has also exhibited his work around the world, held creative workshops and partaken in art residencies. His goal is to continue to work with a large variety of clients to explore the further possibilities of his work, while also sharing and exhibiting his creations to as many people as possible.
Ben’s current clients include, Google, Apple, Hoegaarden, Rubicon, New York Times Magazine, Vice Magazine, Wall Street Journal, GQ, Elle, Stanford Design School, Bloomberg Businessweek, Galison Harpers Magazine and Jarrold’s.
