Ben Laughton Smith is a British artist, born in the Cotswolds and living in West Sussex.
He studied at the Sarum Studio (under Nicholas Beer, formerly the senior tutor at the Charles H Cecil Studio, Florence) and at the London Atelier of Representational Art. In 2016 the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust awarded him the Siegmund Warburg Scholarship to continue his studies in painting.
Ben has exhibited nationally, and his work is in private collections across England. Ben places a strong emphasis on draftsmanship and craft: one of the reasons he was recently featured in the book ‘A Celebration of British Craftsmanship’.
