Ken Clarke

Ken uses his art a personal escape and chance to relax into his space and feelings. After retiring from a very successful career in professional bodybuilding Ken needed an escape, he paints his ideal world as scenic landscapes and calming seascapes.

His work has evolved from early figure studies and drawings into a series of atmospheric grey-scale landscapes. Painting gives inner tranquillity to reflect on his feelings and emotions. It is Ken’s inner calm and release from city life. After recently relocated to the countryside and Ken is now surrounded by peaceful woodland which influences his work.

‘I work in a variety of mediums and subject matters. I often experiment to create new ideas and effects. I recently received an award from the “Light Space And Time Gallery” for special recognition of outstanding art. i am enjoying my journey towards self-fulfilment as an artist.’
