Ben Flynn, a.k.a. EINE, shot to international fame when UK Prime Minister David Cameron presented one of his works to President Barack Obama as a gift on his first official state visit to the UK.  But, he is arguably more famous for “Alphabet Street” – the shutters and murals he painted in his trademark colors and typography in Middlesex Street, London– and is described by The Times of London as “a street now internationally recognized as a living piece of art with direct links to The White House.”
Direct from a sell-out show at Gallery 503 in Tokyo Japan, EINE will be painting two public graffiti installations in the Dallas area, including one at the Museum Tower construction site.  He will reproduce one of these on canvas to be auctioned at the MTV International’s Staying Alive Foundation RE: DEFINE event which will be held at The Goss-Michael Foundation on September 24. 

( ) A public exhibition of the art will be September 16 through September 24, the night of the auction.

EINE’s graffiti letters transgress the usual stylized image devised to depict form and emotion and through a combination of color, placement and size they become abstract and unique works of art in their own right. 

EINE was included in the first official museum show showcasing street art earlier this year ‘Art in the streets’ at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) in Los Angeles.

Exhibition Dates:       
September 16 – September 24, 2011
