Ex-college art student exhibits in '10 days'
Ex-Eastleigh College student and Royal Society of British Artists Scholar 2013, nineteen year old Ben Mousley is one of the youngest artists to take part in this year's '10 days' Winchester visual arts event.
This year's event, 'Creative Collisions', is a showcase of contemporary visual art exhibitions, events and projects which take their inspiration from the idea of 'collision'. Over 160 local art professionals will be taking part.
Ben's artwork, which is sponsored by Winchester Decorative and Fine Arts Society, is paint-based work and hung like a banner, forming one of 30 installations and participatory events in Winchester Cathedral during the exhibition, one of the leading venues for 10 days this year.
After attending Peter Symonds College, Ben completed a one year pre-degree Foundation Diploma in Art, Design and Media at Eastleigh College, receiving a Distinction and Fine Art Student of the Year (2013) accolade.
Talking of how the Foundation course developed his career in the art world, Ben said: "Ever since I was a child I've always seen myself doing art and Eastleigh College for me was the next step in that journey. What was great about this course was that it was a nice environment to work in; it had a sort of flair that I enjoy. I did consider some London colleges but decided to study at Eastleigh after attending its open event."
Ben's work will be on display at Winchester Cathedral from 25th October until 3rd November 2013.
