Ben Levy: The New Kind Of Portrait Artist

Ben Levy is a portrait artist from North London. His work is detailed portraiture with a modern street art twist. His last exhibition Fashionable Disaster conveyed everyday issues that have become fashionable through the press. He captured racial, political, sexual & suicidal topics in a comic like scenario. Famous faces include: John Galliano, the Kray twins, Alexander McQueen & Amy Winehouse.

I met Ben at The Other Art Fair on the Southbank in 2011, he’s gone on to create work for the brand TOMS during the fair and customising some of their new eyewear range for an auction in collaboration with the Debut Contemporary Art School Awards 2012. He’s previously exhibited at the Strand Gallery in London. He is currently represented by Debut Contemporary Gallery in Notting Hill.
