New Ben Eine Street Art Tribute To The Victims & Survivors Of The Grenfell Tower

Last week saw Graffiti/Typography Writer Ben Eine take to the iconic Village Underground wall in Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, to place up a mural in tribute to those who lost their life and those who survived the Grenfell Tower inferno commemorating one month from the tragic fire that took place in West London.

Ben Eine’s work has been prominent around East London over the years and there are still many of his works, some older than others, to be seen around Shoreditch and Hackney. Since his days as a prolific Graffiti Writer on the underground scene, Eine has gone on to become one of the most successful commercial Street Artists around the globe, which in the process has led him to paint the world over, leaving his mark ranging from single distinctive stylized letters or his inspirational and dry witty comments.

For this work Ben Eine has painted an extract “You Saw It In The Tears Of Those Who Survived” from a poem entitled “Grenfell Tower, June 2017” by Ben Okri and the mural was organized by ‘Paint The Change’ a project set up to utilize the power of Street Art to highlight issues around social injustice in an effort to force people to think and converse on social issues prompted through art.
