Ben Winspear

Ben Winspear is a Melbourne based artist who works in both oil and watercolour. He has been painting professionally for over 15 years and has held several successful exhibition. Ben paints a wide range of subject matter; anything that inspires him at the time, but his love for the Australian landscape is something that stands out. His work runs the full spectrum from representational through to abstraction, frequently combining both. Ben is a multi-award-winning artist in Central Victoria, Melbourne and surrounding districts. Awards include winner of the Castlemaine James Farrell Self Portrait Prize, the AME Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize and 2016 Victorian Artist Society ‘Artist of the Year’. Ben has facilitated the execution of several major art projects in schools, and projects in conjunction with local government and private departments–including The City of Greater Bendigo, Coliban Water, NCCA, Department of Primary Industries..
