Delftware tile - Ben Eine

Delftware tile - Ben Eine

One of the many new 'Delft' tiles I am creating for my Umbra Sumus (We Are But Shadows) solo show at the end of this month (April 27 - 29 inclusive) in Spitalfields.

This tile represents Mr Ben Eine, street artist, whose ornate capital letters adorn the pulled-down shutters of Spitalfields and Shoreditch. My favourite piece of his is the small street that runs between Redchurch-street and Bethnal Green-road, with ANTIANTIANTI... down one side in plain grayscale and PROPROPROPRO... in lush colour down the other.
