AN ARTIST has had a stroke of luck after his work was chosen to go on exhibition at an art gallery.

Ben Mosley , 24, from Baldock, will see his The Beautiful Game on show at the Ninetythree gallery in east London throughout June.

The artist's paintings and monoprints are a celebration of the multicultural nature of the FIFA World Cup.

It is the first time that Ben, who is an ex-pupil of Knights Templar School, has had work on show in the city.

Both Ben and the directors of Ninetythree have decided to use the show to raise money for 6 Villages for 2006, the official charity campaign of the FIFA World Cup.

The aim of the charity is to build six new children's villages and provide 800 orphaned, abandoned and destitute children with new homes.

To raise money, Ben is donating his Twin Towers 2006 painting of the old Wembley stadium twin towers which will go to a silent auction.

He said: "My paintings show the dynamism and the explosion of energy that happens in football, which is why the painting has to be spontaneous and rigorous.

"Art and football have been a big part of my life and it is great that I can give something back through these and help less fortunate children to have a better life."

More information about the show, the gallery and Ben can be found at www.ninetythree.co.uk/ and the show is on now and runs until June 30.
