Benjamin Murphy

Bespoke commission

Ben Murphy 

Benjamin Murphy is a visual artist who creates darkly alluring artworks using the esoteric medium of electrical tape.

His works are often unposed portraits of solitary figures situated within their homes, going about their daily lives with no concern for the viewer’s gaze. The backgrounds contain many elements that allude to hidden meanings, and he describes the still-life artworks as  ‘zoomed-out vanitas’. His works are ethereal and vague in what is depicted, often containing seemingly contradictory elements that, combined with the use of perspective and the eyeless figures, creates a discordant feeling in the viewer.

Benjamin has most recently created a commission for actress Olivia Colman and you could be next! This is your chance to commission an unforgettable piece of work.
