Ben Newman has developed a distinct aesthetic over the years; a contemporary fusion of bold shapes, bright colours and playful characters which has been described as ‘Bauhaus fuzzy felt.’ He has produced work for a large range of clients, including the Tate Modern, New York Times, BBC Radio 4, Google and Volkswagon. His practice extends outside of commercial work into worldwide exhibitions, three dimensional collaborations and most recently a children’s book with Dr. Dominic Walliman, Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space, published by Flying Eye Books.
Concurrent to working as a freelance illustrator, Newman lectures on illustration at various universities and conferences in the UK and Europe. He also has a part-time role working as an art director for Nobrow and Flying Eye Books.
