“I specialise in creating Live Paintings to help raise funds for charities. It means a lot to me because I think it’s so important to give something back.”
On the 30th November 2016, Ben was invited to paint global superstar and EACH Ambassador Ed Sheeran, at the Natural History Museum. The fundraiser was in aid of East Anglia Children Hospice and the Gee Wizz Foundation and Ben painted in front of a live audience.
The finished artwork of Ed was covered in gold leaf and resembled an album cover. The event was a huge success and the painting sold for £25,000 in the live auction, with the proceeds being divided equally between the two charities.
