Ben Eine “Missing You”

“Missing You” is Ben Eine’s addition to The Cullen Hotel’s Street Art Suite series.

The hotel teamed up with UK street artist Ben Eine to create a one-of-a-kind artwork using elements of his distinctive typography and splashes of his graffiti style.

In town recently to join 25 of the hottest urban artists to create a multi-sensory art experience in Richmond, Eine spent two weeks at The Cullen and was invited to makeover one of its deluxe studio suites.

Titled ‘Missing You’, the artwork is a love letter to his French girlfriend and brings the spirit of Melbourne’s laneway culture into the hotel.

Each of The Cullen’s Street Art Suites features a personalised stamp left by the artist, as well as Adam Cullen artworks and books, to create to create an immersive art experience.

Eine is the fifth street artist to be featured, joining the ranks of Swoon, Blek le Rat, D*Face and Stormie Mills.

Eine’s trip to Melbourne was part of a campaign to help raise $1 million for the youth-led foundation Reach, aligning with his belief that “street artists want to add something to the environment”.

His work is currently held in the permanent collections of the V&A, London, The Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles and galleries worldwide, while his work can be seen in streets all over the world – most recently he completed a huge mural on the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi.

We spoke to him to get the lowdown on his subversive new app: NO AD.

Agents of Change – The Ghostvillage Project

6 artists – 1 abandoned village.

The Agents of Change – aka Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm – were given carte blanche to paint an abandoned 1970s village.

Collaborating on huge walls, as well as hidden cracks and corners, the artists were inspired by the bleak isolation of the site to create characters and art, breathing a life into the site that it never got to live…
