Street Artist Ben Eine, Documentary

Street Alphabet | Do you remember the photo-documentary I did of famous graffiti and street artist Ben Eine painting a wall for the Moniker Art Fair in London? While I took photos, East London based creative producer Abbie Brandon took some nice video footage and interviewed Ben. Now she finished her film about a weekend in Ben Eine’s life…

The doc was filmed over a weekend (plus a Friday night before and some neatening up on the Monday). Ben was painting 2 walls – one being PRO PRO PRO on Ebor Street in East London – the other being CALCULATE on Hollywell Lane, also in East London.

PRO PRO PRO was on the side of ad agency Mother London. A week or so earlier Ben had painted ANTI ANTI ANTI on the opposite wall at the request of graphic design guru Neville Brody in conjunction with the Anti Design Festival. Mother loved the work and asked that he do something on their wall.

The CALCULATE wall is one that Ben has previously and famously painted with VANDALISM. This time he had been invited to paint the wall my Moniker Art Fair as he was exhibiting at their exhibition the following week.

By the way, the blackbook in which Ben is write right at the beginning of the film is mine!
