Ben Eine – Tenderloin A-Z

Nelly Duff presents an exclusive one night exhibition with Ben EINE, in the heart of London’s East End.

The exhibition will be held in a disused warehouse, one of the last remnants of industrial Shoreditch. Since the turn of the millennium EINE was instrumental in developing the area into the artistic hub that it is today, and his bold use of colour and signature spray dust finish has cemented him as supreme ‘Font Smith’ of the Street Art genre worldwide.

The show marks the release of EINE’s 52 colour screen printed edition ‘Tenderloin’ A-Z, which takes its name from an area of San Francisco and brings the West Coast of America to EINE’s home audience!
This exhibition will also launch ‘The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti’ by Dr. Rafael Schacter, co-curator of the Tate Modern’s renowned Street Art exhibition. EINE is one of the featured artists in this new book from Aurum Press which documents Street Art across the globe. EINE will customise 10 x ATLAS covers with the letter A, available randomly with the purchase of the book on the night.

Date: September 18th 2013
Time: 6-9pm
Venue: Secret East London location- address to be revealed 1 day before the opening Nelly Duff on social media.

Nelly Duff, Eine and publishers Aurum have also kindly put aside TWO copies of the book to give away to VNA readers. Stay tuned for details on how to win!

"Wonder Club" by Sickboy

Sickboy is in San Francisco producing a show of sick and twisted dreams, childhood imaginations, and hopes and fears. The show includes heavy installation pieces and a series of original paintings, low edition screen prints on wood, painted metal boxes, and the iconic Sickboy temple pieces on wood and book covers. I have here exclusive photographs shot by Colin M. Day, along with some questions and tid bits into the current life of Sickboy. This show is uncurated by Ben Eine. If you’re in SF make sure to stop by White Walls, Saturday March 17th from 7-11pm. Stay tuned for more shots of the opening, and walls with Sickboy and Eine.

Below are some brief questions with Sickboy and Eine:

VNA: What has been your experience of the Tenderloin, SF so far?

Sickboy: It’s pretty insane on the surface, but behind the crackheads and alcoholics there is a nice strong connected community. Although, some of the craziest things I’ve seen here so far was on the first day of the month when the homeless got their government checks and it was like Night of the Living Dead on the streets.

VNA: Why are you excited about this show?

Sickboy: It’s my first US show in a city I’ve never been, but always wanted to go to. I’m able to make new ideas come to life. Since this is my first solo show in the states and in San Francisco, I really want to smash it.

VNA: Your shows are based heavily on installation. Tell us about the theme for this installation?

Sickboy: The gallery has two separate rooms and themes. The back room I’m turning into a psychedelic child’s room. Since I’ve been here I have collected little bits from the Tenderloin, and also brought bits from the UK which will all be included in the room. In the main front room will be a resurrection of one of my cartoon coffins underneath dirt, surrounded by rainbows, and lit up with a one of a kind light box. Sick!

VNA: Hello Ben. How are you? How long have you been in San Francisco for?

Eine: Ya, cool. Been here for three days.

VNA: How long have you known Sickboy?

Eine: I’ve known of Sickboy for years and years, but I’ve known him personally since he moved to London.
