Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

For over two decades, Jason Benjamin was one of Australia’s most prominent artists. His aesthetic nods to the romantic tradition, odes to love and the landscape. The artist was famous for drawing us deeper into a world that is evocative and tugs at the strings that are the essence of being human. Whist the Australian landscape was a primary inspiration for Benjamin, his breadth of visual influence expanded across the globe. Widely travelled and exhibited, the artist’s work resonates with an audience beyond Australia. 

A multiple Archibald Prize finalist, coupled with an extensive solo exhibiting career, Benjamin also had a major touring retrospective exhibition. His work is included in the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Parliament House collection, as well as numerous private collections around the world.
