Ben “EINE” Flynn spent many of his childhood years in London writing his name over and over throughout the city and is now known as the typography renegade whose bold, candy-colored work brought the words LOVE, ADVENTURE, and REVOLUTION to cities all over the world. His lettering graces wine towers in South Africa, storefronts in Mexico, corporate foyers, music video backgrounds, and galleries around the globe. In 2010, British Prime Minister David Cameron gifted President Barack Obama a screen print of EINE’s work during his first official visit to Washington. That same year, EINE painted a complete alphabet on Middlesex Street in East London, which residents rechristened Alphabet Street. After a few years residing in California, EINE is now based in London.
