The very talented Ben Moore talks us through his achievements in a world where artistry thrives!

Among many talents who have reshaped our nation’s creative industries, the artistically gifted Ben Moore, the founder of Art Below since 2006 who revamped a once advertising space into a contemporary art showcase that has developed to become a place to display dynamic artworks by up and coming artists; Moore has set the standard for many art enthusiasts with the act of pioneering art exhibition curation in London.


He has established himself as the curator of the ‘Art in the Age of Now’ exhibition in Fulham town hall to produce an immersive experience for the public as Moore has created a fusion of creative spaces so that unique sets of masterpieces can be installed by a multitude of artists including himself. 

According to the renowned curator, each room’s aesthetic has been inspired by its own history and atmosphere to stimulate the general artistic theme of each space. The Grand Hall is where Ben Moore’s most personal project takes place and it's seemingly very close to his heart which is a scaled-down replica of Stonehenge as he’s been familiar with this prehistoric monument since his early days.


Moore has some words of wisdom to share with young and aspiring artists as he expresses that art enthusiasts should enable themselves to be constantly proactive and get involved with any organisation in the creative setting because the ones who are productive in this sense can achieve more for themselves in their creative pursuit. 
As a result of the global pandemic, Moore observed two types of artists that emerged during the national lockdown as he claimed that some felt they had their ball in their court which gave them more time to grow as an artist and be inclined to develop new creative ideas. In contrast, many artists had undergone periods of loneliness and demotivation which translated into them experiencing a creative block in their career. 


The future sure does look bright for our curator as he is set to do an exhibition for a UK charity like he’s accomplished plenty of times in the past as well as evolve in his career by executing a solo show of his work.
