Ben Fenske
Self Portrait Sketch

2010

About

Painted quickly, from life, a self portrait. Negative space is left untouched beneath the artist's neckline. Giving the piece a real academic feel. Fenske looks directly at the viewer, through busy, urgent brushstrokes of neutral tones. Ben Fenske (b. 1978) although a native of Minnesota, and has been working and living in Sag Harbor, New York and Florence, Italy for the last 7 years. An oil painter in the spirit of the 19th and 20th century impressionists, he often chooses informal and contemporary scenes with an implied narrative. His work, which features brash and suggestive brushstrokes, delights in light and color and is regularly exhibited in shows across the US. Fenske has been the subject of countless national articles, notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012. Education: Russian Academy of Art Florence Academy of Art Studio of Joseph Paquet, Minnesota Bougie Studio, Minnesota. Awards: BP Portrait Award 2016 Exhibited Artist
