Ben Flynn aka Eine (1970) is one of London’s most prolific and original street artists who specialises in the central element of all graffiti – the form of letters. Originally a graffiti writer, he started his career over twenty five years ago as a vandal leaving his first tag all over London before eventually developing a distinct typographic style. Eine specialises in producing huge letters on shop fronts. His bright, colourful letters have transformed streets around the world in cities including LA, San Francisco, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Stockholm as well as his home city of London. In July 2010, US President Barack Obama was presented with a painting by Eine, “Twenty First Century City”, as an official gift from the British Prime Minister David Cameron. Eine’s letters transgress the usual stylised image devised to depict form and emotion and through a combination of colour, placement and size they become abstract and unique works of art in their own right. From single letters to complex and wry statements Eine has left his mark worldwide, his stunning words and letters can be found on shop front shutters and walls as well as in museums and galleries in a style Eine has made striking, effective and his own.
