ith canvases filled with bold and animated graphic lines depicting buildings, portraits and sporting moments, Ben Mosley has made his name as one of the UK’s premier live painters. Merging styles into pieces that are at once figurative, cubist and abstract expressionist, he takes on the role of conveying the energy, emotion and dynamic movement of the moment. To depict such a myriad of changing emotions seen at sporting events – joy, sorrow, aggression, courage – through victory and defeat is no simple task, and the artist’s skill of finding and preserving a moment in time is seen through his confident use of line and composition. His paintings have shown the jubilation of a winning goal, the camaraderie between father and son as they watch a game and encapsulated the

electricity of a crowd making their way to the stadium – all the realities of the human narrative while hinting at the underlying emotions that being part of a community can bring to many. As well as depicting sporting and live events Mosley finds inspiration in architecture, creating works which depict the shapes and patterns of buildings from the world’s most famous skylines. His practice sees him combining mono-printing and contemporary painting techniques, using these methods to develop his individual style. Mosley has worked for a number of prestigious clients creating commissions, for live events, and as artist in residence, including at Wembly Statium. He is the official artist of Barnsley Football Club and has work in both public and private collections, as well as exhibiting regularly in group and solo shows. benmosleyart.com ben@benmosleyart.com
