Ben Quilty Solo Show Opens at Saatchi Gallery in London

At the ripe old age of 40, Sydney-born painter Ben Quilty – Australia’s answer to the likes of Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud – has situated himself as one of Australia’s most revered artists, and will now have the opportunity to cement his growing international reputation with the opening of his first UK solo show at the Saatchi Gallery in London.


In January of this year Quilty was awarded top prize at the inaugural Prudential Eye Awards in Singapore, earning himself the Saatchi Gallery solo exhibition as well as a further US$30,000 of prize money on top of the US$20,000 he won as the winner of the Prudential Eye Award for Painting.

Speaking about the exhibition, Nigel Hurst, CEO, Saatchi Gallery said: “The Saatchi Gallery is delighted to be able to host this exhibition and provide a showcase for recent work by renowned Australian artist Ben Quilty for the very first time.
