This is Ben, the first and one of the 5 artists we met on the Second Floor Studios & Arts.
Ben is an Illustrator and an art-director from Manchester and he is clearly obsessed with the WWE show and characters! He has moved to the SFSA for over a year now and he really feels a difference being in London now and by having a studio near other artists. Ben emphasizes the fact that London is a place with so many connections, it is really important having your own working place, where you can separate Home from Studio in which makes you feel more professional and does make you collaborate with interesting people! Ben has advised us to listen to music that we normally don’t, go to theatres that you would not normally go to, get out from our comfort zone so our work can evolve.
