Ben Flynn, aka Eine, is one of the most exciting and prolific street artists working today. He shot to International fame when David Cameron presented one of his works to President Obama, but is best known for his striking typographic graffiti work- his bright, colourful letters transforming streets and shop fronts around the world in cities including LA, San Francisco, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Stockholm and London. Now, Eine is coming to Salford to imprint a new typographic installation onto the walls of the Promenade Gallery, resulting in an arresting new commission by one of the world’s most inspired street artists within a gallery setting: not to be missed.
