9. Ben Eine
Ben Eine's passion for lettering stemmed from his love of spray paint and the days he spent mastering his craft in London. Transitioning from his graffiti roots into street art, his famous shutters in London sparked new ventures as the subculture became favored by gallery spaces. Eine now calls the West Coast home and continues to explore both works outdoors as well as within gallery walls. Recently, the artist had his first solo NYC show, Heartfelt, and contributed a mural to Rikers Island during his visit.
