Tom Benjamin

Born in 1967, Tom Benjamin grew up near Lewes, within the South Downs. He trained at Brighton then Norwich School of Art. Tom is a plein air painter, and usually transports his artists’ materials by bike.

‘The artist’s job is to make poetry out of the ordinary,’ he says. ‘I get to know the areas very well; every time I go back it’s like adding another layer of knowledge. Sometimes I am struck by something I get an emotional response from … It’s a continuous process of reproducing, improvising and altering my response. I am always surprised by what comes out.’
