Ben Eine

Originally a writer, influential artist Ben Eine is now one of London’s most prolific artists, specialising in typographical art. The archetype of contemporary UK street-art, Eine’s ‘21st Century City’ was famously gifted to Barack Obama by David Cameron in 2010, and can be seen daily on his canvas of choice: the walls and shutters of shops around London. ‘Alphabet Street’, his most iconic work to date, is an unbounded mural, filling the concrete spaces of Middlesex Street, London, with his characteristically colourful lettering.


The beauty of Eine’s work lies in its puzzle-like form: though word based, Eine’s prints are about a love of the letter, and, as such, they become a place where sense gets lost. Eine makes his viewer work to decipher his writing because this is, first and foremost, a celebration of font and graphics - of the shapes, curves, colours and lines, and the beauty therein. Opting for bold and often retro palettes, Eine’s work refuses to shade into the background, making itself heard as it shouts letters, words and phrases at its viewer, in the most iconic of tones.
