Tim Benson was educated at Glasgow School of Art and Byam Shaw School of Art from 1998-2001. As a figurative artist, Tim not only creates a distinguishable likeness of a subject but moreover evokes the sitter’s character and mood. He is never satisfied with simple representation, rather concentrating on bringing to his work an emotive and often visceral quality.
Tim regularly exhibits in solo and group exhibitions around the UK. He displays fine art paintings that stand on their own as collectable works of art and accordingly has established a large following and collector base. In addition to his fine art pieces, he accepts more formal portrait and figurative commissions in oil or charcoal.
Tim was elected President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, and a member of the New English Art Club in 2018.
