I was recently interviewed about my upcoming show with Delphian Gallery. It is perhaps my favourite interview to date, and can be read [HERE].
Thanks to Moneeka and Nicole.
I’m very happy to announce that I’ve been invited to judge this year’s London Loop art prize.
The other judges include Turner Prize winner Joe Halligan (as part of Assemble), singer Aluna George, and Lee Bofkin. Prizes include a trip to NYC and £10k for the overall winner, so I hope you all got your entries in!
I’ll be uploading photos of the awards party to my Instagram so make sure to follow me there – @benjaminmuphy_

The name Hamartia is often used to describe the error of judgement of a protagonist in literature. This piece in particular is loosely inspired by Desdemona’s final scene in William Shakespeare’s Othello, and the title refers to Othello’s realisation of his error of judgement (or anagnorisis).
Today (the 7th of March) happens to be my 30th birthday, so I decided to mark the occasion with a new print, which was drawn and cut over the Christmas period in Yorkshire, and printed in January in London.
This piece is entitled ‘Torso & 4 Reflections’ and is an A4 ink-on-paper drawing.
Here is my first tape painting of 2018. Sold at an event at The Serpentine Sackler Gallery for human-rights charity Reprieve.

Here is an in-progress shot of my first ever oil painting. I’m not sure where this is going yet but I’m enjoying the process.
