PAINTINGS by Keighley artist Ben Snowden can be seen by sunseekers this summer in Greece.

Ben is among artists exhibiting in a show entitled Nostalgia at the Municipal Gallery of Piraeus in Athens.

The exhibition, curated by London-based Art.Number23, was last month at the Misc Arts Center in Timisoara, Romania.

Other artwork by Ben can be currently seen at galleries across the North of England throughout the late summer and early autumn.

And one of his paintings has been selected to be part of the Priseman Seabrook Collection of 21st Century British Painting.

The piece will be held in the collection alongside works by illustrious artists like David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Terry Greene, Nathan Eastwood, Nicholas Middleton, Tracey Emin and Peter Blake.

Ben said his paintings were influenced by abstraction and the natural world, created from recycled everyday materials.

He said: “I strongly believe that art can be created from anything, you just have to put your heart, mind and soul into it!”

Art lovers can see Ben’s work in a group exhibition at the South Square Centre in Thornton, until September 2.

The Art Works in Otley currently features a selection of his paintings, while Town Hall Arts in Trowbridge is exhibiting his work until September 15.

Our Earth 2018 is a group exhibition of British and international artists at the Kunsthuis Gallery in Crayke, North Yorkshire, which began in March and runs until December 23.

Ben was one of several abstract and Expressionist artists from Bradford district whose work was displayed for a month last spring on the Big Screen in Bradford’s Centenary Square.

Earlier this year Ben took part in an open art exhibition at the Ardent Gallery in Brecon, Wales, as well as the annual Saltaire arts Trail in May.

As part of its tour of Europe, Nostalgia has also been seen at the Toon Gallery in Amsterdam this year.
