4ZZZ Happy Fest Benefit Auction Painting


Time to get happy! Mainstream radio cops a beating while the Z banana man broadcasts the good times. B-dudes breakin, Ned Kelly gets carried away with joyful balloons, Black Caviar finds a post-retirement job, and even the Angry Penguin enjoys a balloon.

This painting will be in Brisbane this weekend and will be sold at auction as a part of the 4ZZZ radio fundraiser Happy Fest. 


Come down, show your love for community radio, and be the first person in Brisbane to own an original Ben Butcher painting!

Black Caviar Rides Again - Art Prize Entry


I have entered this new painting, Black Caviar Rides Again in to the prestigious Inglis Equine Art Prize.
For those who have been living under a rock, Black Caviar has recently retired after being undefeated, 25 sprint races...champion! Now days, Black Caviar is available for parties, medieval fairs, and having sex with other awesome horses.

Please watch and consider carefully, Thank you

New Work - Spiritual Jock Flies High


I don't often do commissioned paintings, however I shared the vision so closely with my client that I agreed to doing this, which I completed just last week.

Of course, commissioned jobs require clients to pay me more, and to give me finer whisky...
