Benjamin Clemens (1875 – 1957) was a 20th-century sculptor based in London. He was educated at Lonsbury College before going on to study art at the North London school of Art and the Royal College of Art. After his studies at the Royal College of Art he was appointed Assistant Master under Professor Edouard Lanteri. He was appointed an honorary member of the Royal Society of British sculptors in 1946. His works can be seen at Africa House, Kingsway; the Headquarters of the Mothers Union; Nottingham County Hall; St Paul's Vicarage Gate, Kensington and Westminster Abbey to name but a few. Other famous commissions include works for the Coronation of Edward VII and the Wembley exhibition. His Works during his life were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art regularly as well as all over the world including Paris, Rome, Brussels and the US.

An obituary in The Times in 1958 written by one of his students, Gilbert Ledward OBE, talked of how Clemens sacrificed his own career in order to teach, 'his own career was sacrificed in order to teach and he never received the recognition he deserved'.
