Ben Catt is one of the leading lights of the younger generation of artists working in Cornwall today. He has been taken up by several local galleries since his move to Cornwall a few years ago and he has quickly developed a strong local following.

Ben Catt was born in London in 1970. He studied sculpture in Newcastle before beginning a career working for a leading design company. Since moving to Cornwall several years ago Benís work has been taken up by several local galleries and he has had a number of one-man shows in the region, including at the New Craftsman Gallery, St Ives.

Benís paintings are heavily influenced by the landscapes of Penwith, evoking feelings and emotions conjured up by the weather conditions and the changing seasons. The works being shown in West Cornwall Perspectives were all painted between February and May 2016 when the Cornish countryside is bleak and isolated but the first colours of spring were beginning to show. Ben works with acrylic paints in several layers, creating different forms and textures that lead to the sense of atmosphere in the paintings.

As well as inside Cornwall, Benís paintings have been shown at exhibitions in several galleries across the country. His uninhibited painting style has already won him many followers.
