About

Ben Mosley is one of Britain’s leading artists, his work capturing the emotional energy, overflowing passion and dynamic movement of athletic display and popular culture in pieces that may be described as once figurative, cubist and abstract expressionist.  Commissioned by the biggest organisations within sport including Wembley Stadium, Manchester United, McDonalds, The London Olympics, and The Emirates and Creek Golf clubs in Dubai, Mosley is fast becoming a recognised international artist and his work is highly collectable.

So many human emotions play out in sporting events, — joy, sorrow, aggression, fear, and courage.  For each victory and defeat there are one hundred special moments, and it is these moments that Mosley captures on canvas.  His paintings have portrayed the victory of a winning goal, showed the camaraderie between father and son as they watch a game and encapsulated the electricity of a crowd making their way to the stadium.  His abstract style, reminiscent of the action art of Kline and de Kooning, is at once evocative and invigorating, depicting the reality of the human narrative while hinting at the underlying emotions that being part of a community can bring to many.

As well as sport, Mosley has a keen interest in depicting architecture through shape and pattern and he uses a variety of instruments that combine mono-printing techniques with contemporary methods of painting to create his individual style.  The movement, atmosphere, energy and character of city life are Mosley’s inspiration to depict some of the most famous skylines from around the world in new and exciting ways.

Mosley’s collectors and endorsers of his work include Sir Alex Ferguson, Wayne Rooney, Jose Mourinho, Jerry Weintraub and his work can be found in many private collections around the world
