About the film, from filmaker Abbie Brandon -
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.
Quite a chaotic weekend but both walls got finished and looked great!
Ben has a show coming up in San Francisco at White Walls Gallerywhere this film amongst other street art docs will be playing.
And me….I am a filmmaker based in East London (handy). I get involved in all sorts of projects, but this one was great fun.
