PICKED: A Documentary About Street Artist Ben Eine
By Maria Popova
We have a soft spot for street art and love the work of London’s Ben Eine, so this new microdocumentary about his work by filmmaker Abbie Brandon, following Eine as his paints two murals in East London, made us swoon.
The first mural, Pro Pro Pro, was a play on Eine’s Anti Anti Anti, painted a week earlier on the opposite wall, upon iconic graphic designer Neville Brody‘s suggestion as part of the Anti Design Festival.
The second, Calculate, is a rework of Eine’s famous Vandalism piece and was commissioned by Moniker Art Fair, where Eine exhibited the following week.
More of Eine’s exceptional work can be found in Trespass: A History Of Uncommissioned Urban Art — the must-have street art bible we featured last year.
