To celebrate the launch of our new artist rooms by Pure Evil and Ben Eine, we’re hosting an intimate panel talk with the artists on “Street Art vs Fine Art”, followed by a 4-course tasting menu from The Set. The panel will be recorded live for ‘Art Related Noise’, the new podcast from our friends at artrepublic.
Ben Eine & Charlie (aka Pure Evil) will be discussing street art vs fine art, the influences the two have had respectively on their work and debating their places within our society at the moment. With 25 years in the game, Ben Eine is often regarded as a pioneer in the type space. Innovating the form with his own exploration of graffiti, he developed his unique typographic style that can be seen within our gallery and on the streets of Brighton and London respectively. Charlie was also heavily influenced by graffiti culture, his ‘most important artistic discovery’, one that is still prevalent within his best-known work. The iconic blotch of dripping paint underneath the eye of his muses lends itself to the influence of street art, a trademark that is now globally recognised as his.
Tickets £75 to include panel talk & 4 course dinner.
