Those who follow contemporary art, or those who have an eye for letterforms, will be pleased to know that one of London’s most prominent artist, Ben Eine, has relaunched his website, https://www.einesigns.com. The new digital space displays artworks that have marked the various stages of his +30 year career and sells a curated selection of it directly from its e-commerce – including exclusive releases.
Eine’s online archive include some of his early shutter art in London and the many pieces of art that developed from there to end up in countless museums, festivals, high-end boutiques and work spaces. Being an avid supporter of awareness around the issues of Homelessness and Mental Health, in his website Eine also promotes some of the pieces he has dedicated to these causes along the years, such as the works for The Big Issue, Sotheby’s London and the Movember Foundation.
Eine’s rise to prominence happened thanks to his visually fascinating style of bright and bold original fonts including NewCircus, Shutter, Vandal, Tenderloin and Keyline, amongst others. Over time, these very fonts earned the respect of critics and collectors alike for their distinctive aesthetics, each meticulously crafted to bring words and letters to live in a powerful and engaging way. In various occasions, Eine also collaborated with other artists including the globally famous Banksy.
Such collaborations eventually led him and Banksy to establish Pictures on Walls, a platform celebrating a new generation of art. This pioneering move was a huge driving force for an emerging art form to capture the attention of a wider audience and gain momentum. His work quickly grew in popularity and in 2010, Eine’s international recognition was reaffirmed when the then UK Prime Minister David Cameron presented his artwork “Twenty First Century” to United States President Barack Obama.
Currently, Eine’s works are permanently showcased in the V&A Museum London, The Museum of Modern Art in Los Angeles, Urban Nation Street Art Museum in Berlin, as well as in the private collection of Louis Vuitton and other commercial institutions.
