Benjamin Sullivan gained a BA (Hons) degree in drawing and painting from Edinburgh College of Art. His work has been seen regularly in the exhibitions of the New English Art Club, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the BP Portrait Award (2002, 2006–12). He was artist-in-residence at All Souls College, Oxford (2009–10). Sullivan’s portrait of Professor Martin Rees was commissioned for the National Portrait Gallery’s Collection.

The portrait is of the artist’s friend Craig, whom he has wanted to paint for some time. They were finally able to arrange some sittings in Sullivan’s studio in 2012.
