Ben Waddams is a British wildlife artist living and working in Shropshire. Originally from Buckinghamshire, South East England, Ben has lived in the States for many years on several different occasions and traveled in search of exotic wildlife across Central America and Africa.
"I try to paint 'moments in nature'. Scenes where, for the most part, the viewer plays no active role. My paintings aim to be windows into the natural world. They are concerned primarily with animal behaviour and potential energy - that moment caught in time before life resumes."
Ben's work are simple studies with subtle hints to the habitat and environment. He enjoys the details of the natural world but he is not a realist. Ben's paintings are painted to give the impression and illusion of detail, without actually painting the detail itself. In other words they aim to be faithful to natural history whilst maintaining a style and an artistic integrity.
Ben's aim is that they invoke a stirring in the minds of their audience and in turn his hope is that the audience themselves will be inspired to seek out and help protect the species in his paintings and of this planet.
