Artist Biography



Ben Reid, the anglers el dorado         Ben Reid, ratbag



Ben Reid is a Christchurch-based printmaker whose work draws together specific references to our history of settlement of the natural environment within the wider context of the conservation movement. Providing subtle, yet pointed, reminders of the fragile nature of New Zealand’s native species, Reid’s prints focus on the vulnerability of its plants and animals, threatened by disease, loss of habitat and exotic predators. Reid studied at Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art, graduating in 2005. He has since worked as assistant to master printmaker Marian Maguire at PaperGraphica and exhibited widely throughout New Zealand since 2005.
