Ben Coutouvidis

In 1993, Ben Coutouvidis graduated from Rhodes University with a distinction and has exhibited at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, as well as group shows throughout Cape Town and Johannesburg. Well known for his atmospheric distilling paintings depicting the everyday and mundane; he recently began exploring sculp- tural mediums such as wood and metal. Here, we see the range of the artist as these sculptural forms work within the similar concepts but exist in a blunt presence and focus more on the human body.
