Street artist and master of street typography Ben Eine has been announced for SKIP Night, hosting an evening of life drawing and live street art as part of Art Night 2017.SKIP Night will feature life drawing classes inside a closed skip situated in the playground of the Sir John Cass’s Foundation Primary School with classes taught by Draw Brighton founder, Jake Spicer. Featuring a variety of models and poses, the classes will encourage visitors to take up their pencils and sketch a spotlit life model from the intimate, amphitheatre style seating area inside the skip. Throughout the evening, artist Ben Eine will create a live piece, spraying the interior of the skip as well as appearing as a life model in a surprise time slot to be announced only on the evening itself.
The Skip will remain in situ post Art Night, housing an exhibition by Ben Eine until 7th July.
Hailed as a pioneer of letter-form street art, Ben Eine began exploring the distinctions between street art and graffiti during his highly successful career as a renowned writer in the underground London graffiti scene. Moving into commercial graffiti with his distinct typographic style, Eine came to prominence through his symbiotic partnership with street artist Banksy with his work famously gifted to Barack Obama from David Cameron in 2010.
