Detail photos for this Artwork
One of Australia’s most successful contemporary talents, artist Jason Benjamin was known for his great painterly skill and for magnificent large and mood-inducing landscape paintings.
His forte is beautiful depictions of light, often portraying illuminated and striking cloud formations passing over Australia’s wide awe-inspiring horizons. Benjamin’s stirring landscapes are complemented by his powerfully emotive titles.
Born in Melbourne in 1971, Benjamin studied at the Pratt Institute in New York but abandoned formal studies to work in an art gallery. After taking up full time painting in 1995, he enjoyed wide popularity with works hung in prestigious private collections as well as in the homes of Hollywood stars. Benjamin won numerous art awards and has work represented in the National Portrait Gallery, Ballarat Art Gallery, Shepparton Art Gallery, Artbank, Bendigo Bank and Macquarie Bank.
