About the artist
Ben Helmink was born in The Netherlands and studied Art and Art History in Amsterdam. For many years he taught arts and crafts at schools in the same city. Ben often travelled to Italy to study the Italian Renaissance.
He has lived with his spouse Rian close to the Barragem de Santa Clara in the Alentejo since 2006. As a fine artist, he developed his talent for painting and drawing in his own studio, Monte das Moradias. Ben has held various solo exhibitions and has exhibited with his colleagues from the ArtwaysArt group. In 2016 Ben joined the artists group Peace Art and Society in Faro.
The themes of his work vary from ancient Greek and Roman culture, the regional nature and culture of the Alentejo, to music and dance. The materials he uses consist mainly of oil and acrylic paint in combination with sand structure and slate.
Furthermore, during a large part of the year, Ben runs workshops in painting and drawing as well as in the application of sand structure on canvas.
In addition Ben paints and draws on request, particularly in aquarelle.
The fine-art exhibition “Alentejo, Source of Inspiration” shows Ben´s work from 2006 to 2018.
The exhibition opens in Faro on 12th January at 4pm and remains open to the public until 25th January.
The gallery is closed on Mondays.
