Ben Alden Artist

Benjamin Alden is a contemporary British figurative and portraiture painter living and working in Norwich, Norfolk.
Benjamin’s practice is largely centred around creating expressive and emotive paintings, which look at the human form and focus on how we interact with one another and how we connect to the spaces we inhabit.
In his works he uses techniques such as chiaroscuro, a bold colour palette, intimately cropped compositions and evocative symbolism, which allows him to create scenes which express the subtle and silent beauty found in the human condition.
Taking these concepts, Benjamin produces paintings in his Norfolk studio where he works in a range of paint mediums from oil colour to gouache and watercolour.
