Ben Taffinder – Biography
He studied Fine Art at Falmouth College and then went on to create installations for several outdoor sculpture events in Europe and Asia. He also worked locally as a diver and fisherman for his family business near Portscatho.
Ben took up full time painting in 2010 and was recently taken on by The Harbour Gallery, Portscatho, because of the vibrancy of his colours and bold pallet-knife style.
Working in oils and often using a knife, Ben paints outside, directly from life, within the landscape he feels a part of. He is constantly drawn to the sea which has been such a huge influence in his life and work.
