BEN WAKELING

Ben Wakeling (b.1985) is a British artist who has created a gestural vocabulary that is genuinely universal and goes beyond words. His abstract figurative drawings and paintings depict powerful charcoal lines freely-scribbled with bold colors infused with energy, an extension of the artist’s feelings. The brain-to-hand emotional quality of his work makes it so captivating and allows so many to tap into their own emotions. His work is vulnerable and authentic. 

 

He is a guest lecturer for ‘Arts in Health’ at psychology dept at UWE and a founder of Outsider Gallery and Hackney Wick Life Drawing. He is currently delivering an Expressive Arts and Wellbeing programme for the NHS MHT North London Forensic Service.
