Ben Lawson is a unique individual who defies explanation. I love people like that. I can’t say it better than he does himself so I may as well let his own words do the talking:

“I kicked around as a physicist and engineer for many years before becoming an artist and I’ve done some pretty random things in between including finding squirrels for Rumanian TV and reporting on nuclear terrorism for the Japanese government.

Much of my work describes a fascination with scientific illustration, the antiquarian imagination and the blurring between the real and the obviously not true.

I live beyond the borders of the Roman Empire with my wife and 4 year old son in Newcastle upon Tyne.”
