Ben Quilty for Artist Profile
In the lead up to his exhibition, After Afghanistan, I photographed cousin, Ben Quilty for Artist Profile Magazine in his studio in the NSW Southern Highlands. After Afghanistan concludes this weekend in Sydney and will then travel to 8 regional galleries throughout Australia over the next two years. The exhibition comprises work that Quilty made following a deployment to Afghanistan as Australia’s official war artist in late 2011. CLICK HERE for more details.

If you really can’t get enough of Ben, you might be interested in hearing his guest appearance on Triple J radio with Zan Rowe on which he chose five songs that painted the portrait of his life and spoke of why. CLICK HERE to listen.
