Ben Eine at Judith Charles

Tonight! British artist Ben Eine will bring his special brand of fusing graffiti with letter writing next week to one of my favorite spots- the Judith Charles Gallery on Bowery. His typographic style is simplistic yet powerful, transforming the loopy swirls of graffiti tags into a style that reminds me of old timey type setting (I’m waiting for that to be the next trend in Brooklyn- “artisanal hand-pulled typeset printed newspapers”. Pretty soon it will be cool to commute to the bar on horse back.)

The opening is February 5, we can only hope Eine will decorate our city with some love letters in the meantime.

In case you missed it, here’s a video of Eine in convo with Moniker Projects in London.
