About Me

 

Ben Cocker commenced his career in art when he attended Cleveland College of Art & Design in Teesside and commenced a BTEC National Diploma in Fine Art and Photography.

As part of his course Ben used many varied materials to create his art works from metals, wood, plaster and the extensive library of images he captured during his time at CCAD.

Ben applied to Edinburgh College of Art to pursue a course in Illustration after successfully completing and achieving a Distinction in his BTEC National Diploma and an A Level in Photography.

During the first year at ECA Ben studied a variety of disciplines and enjoyed practising new techniques to create his varied pieces of art works.

At the end of the first year of his degree Ben decided to focus on Sculpture and has spent the past three years working with Bronze, Wax, Metals, Plaster, Wood and other medium to create individual pieces of art that he has displayed at numerous events in and around Edinburgh.

Ben successfully achieved a BA Hons 2:1 in Sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art in 2012.
