Benny Watson (b. 1998, UK) is a self-taught artist based in the West Midlands. He began his career as an oil painter, painting commissioned large scale head portraits, landscape scenes and eventually abstract expressionist pieces with thick impasto textures. 
His education as a filmmaker and recurrent imagery of anonymous primitive figures in a performance or surrounded by objects of desire - painted with broad, frenetic mark making - gives his recent work a focus on the complexity of the human condition and specifically the idea of control; the animalistic and impulsive.

He uses an array of materials such as oil paint, sand, plasterboard and spray paint to explore his concepts, creating highly textured, sculptural pieces.

His debut solo show 'SHARDS & ALTER EGOS' was exhibited at Shoreditch Modern Gallery in March and April 2024.
