Ben Ho
“Ben’s ability to paint in oil and watercolour, impressionist or realist, with the same depth of quality and skill is remarkable. Where artists are often gifted or acclaimed in a singular subject, Ben’s art covers landscapes, wildlife, nudes and still life, all rendered with equal skill and exquisite outcomes. Ben’s art has traditionally been faithful to the old arts. In recent times, however, he has reached out to the contemporary abstract realm; fusing his explorations with traditional art conventions.

Ben was born in Canton, China and studied art since he was 7 years old. After high school, he studied at the Canton Fine Art School. He immigrated to New Zealand in 1988 and lived in Auckland for twenty years and currently lives in Queenstown with his wife Mary Mai and their son.

Since 1991, Ben has exhibited his art widely throughout New Zealand. He has won numerous Art Awards including the Otago Regional Council Award, KG Frazer Award and the Gold Medal Award at the Royal Easter Show.

He has also been featured internationally; being one of Five artists that represented New Zealand Art at the ‘Worldwide Millennium Painting Competition’ in London. He has also featured in popular Australian art magazines and has given tutorials at the Mitchell School Of Arts (Charles Sturt University) in NSW in Australia.

Ben has given tutorials in both watercolours and oil throughout NZ and judged several art competitions. His most recent exhibition, ‘Surrounding Visions’, was in The National Portrait Gallery, in Wellington.

Mary Mai
Born in Guangzhou 1964, Mary at the age of 14, was encouraged to pursue a career in fine art.

Mary has won several New Zealand fine art awards, including the professional category at the Royal Easter Shows in 1995 and 1996.

The drama and movement of the brushwork compliments the beautiful light that Mary always achieves in her paintings, Mary’s paintings are the result of the many emotions felt while observing, the excitement and energy of the colours and the unsettling ever-changing landscape capturing the spirit of the place.
