Ben Howe Biography

Visual artist, teacher and composer based in Melbourne, Australia and Hamburg, Germany.

The bulk of my work circles issues of representation, structure and consciousness. Coming from a background of hyper realist painting, I often produce the initial subjects in sculptural form, and use them as the basis for my artworks. Other works have more political leanings and initiate dialogues concerning gentrification, aesthetic beauty and mass movements.

2011 - Master of Fine Art, RMIT University
2001 - Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education, Monash University
1998 - Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting), RMIT University
