About Artist & Art Details

Ben Eine is most notable for his alphabet lettering on shop shutters in London. He has also taken his lettering to the streets of Paris and Stockholm.Eine first came to prominence in the “commercial” graffiti scene through his symbiotic partnership with London graffiti artist Banksy.

In January 2008, Eine was featured in an article in London’s Time Out magazine as one of the six best new street artists working in the capital and in July 2010, President Barack Obama was presented with a painting by Eine as an official gift from the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.

In May 2010 Ben Eine painted a complete alphabet on Middlesex Street in East London, which was re-christened Alphabet Street by the residents and described by The Times as “a street now internationally recognized as a living piece of art with direct links to The White House.”

In 2011 EINE was invited by Amnesty International to design their 50th anniversary poster, joining other artists such as Picasso and Miro in supporting the charity through art. In 2011 Eine joined a growing list of Street Artists who have exhibited with Art Below such as Banksie, Inkie and Goldie.
