Ben Eine uses his typographical brand of street art to open up a dialogue about the importance of the medium.

In a new documentary by Abbie Brandon, street artist Ben Eine discusses his newly commissioned piece Oranges and Lemons and his motivations behind the work and street art in general. In the video, Eine explains how he hopes to maintain a dialogue with the Westminster Council and their zero tolerance policy for street art. He also goes on to express his disdain for overly branded public spaces and how he uses his work to break up that monotony.

Unlike other street artists, Ben Eine’s work is heavily influenced by older forms of typography that he appropriates and reinterprets. His exhibit “GREATEST” recently showed at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco where Colin M Day documented the artist explaining his work and how he hopes to distinguish himself from other street artists.

The new work will appear on the side of the London Graphic Centre in Covent Garden
