The exhibit explores Ben Eine’s three dimensional works alongside his bold typographic paintings, especially the letter S which was his first tag and exploration into typography. In addition, his trademark circus-inspired font has been transformed into a large-scale metal S sculpture for this exhibition.
The artist is also revered for his use of words and phrases, creating “randomized poetry,” as his “sharp statements” cause the viewer to be fully immersed by the combinations of letters, shapes, and aesthetic of his signature vibrant font, which exudes a carnival-like vibe.
In a statement, Ben Eine said, “It’s a pleasure to show my new works at StolenSpace gallery, particularly as this exhibition sees my work translate into new sculptural form – an exciting n ew direction for me. Walking around East London, there are entire streets of my work, so it’s always extra special to exhibit here.”
