benjamin forster was a professional artist for many years. Now he is somewhat unconcerned with professionalilty except as a concept. He has a number of formal papers, like an honours degree in Visual Arts from the Australian National University, a graduate diploma in Library Science from Curtin University, and a soon to expire learners drivers license from the NSW Roads and Maritime Services. In 2016 he co-founded Frontyard Projects in Marrickville, where he helps hold public space open and continues to care for the decommissioned Australia Council for the Art’s research library.
we were fortunate enough to work with benjamin during the conceptual development and early prototyping of deviator.
benjamin was also a resident artist at cia studios during 2012 – 2014
