Artist Ben Ripper

We are going down the road to nearby Swaffham in Norfolk to visit with artist #BenRipper. Swaffham was made famous in the Stephen Fry television series ‘Kingdom’. Ben was a local character. Ben was, of course, artist, as well as local historian and, finally, gents’ barber. His shop window regularly displayed his artwork.

Market Cross, Swaffham, Norfolk – ink drawing with wash by Ben Ripper

I have one artwork by Ben Ripper in my collection. It shows the market cross in Swaffham town center. Nicely executed,Ben has a fine eye for proportions and architecture. An image from a bygone time beautifully rendered.
