Eine - UK

The doc was filmed over a weekend (plus a Friday night before and some neatening up on the Monday). Ben was painting 2 walls - one being PRO PRO PRO on Ebor Street in East London - the other being CALCULATE on Hollywell Lane, also in East London.

PRO PRO PRO was on the side of ad agency Mother London. A week or so earlier Ben had painted ANTI ANTI ANTI on the opposite wall at the request of graphic design guru Neville Brody ... in conjunction with the Anti Design Festival.

The CALCULATE wall is one that Ben has previously and famously painted with 'VANDALISM' (http://www.artofthestate.co.uk/graffiti­/eine_vandalism_graffiti.htm). This time he had been invited to paint the wall my Moniker Art Fair (http://www.monikerartfair.com/) as he was exhibiting at their exhibition the following week.

Ben has a show coming up in San Francisco at White Walls Gallery (http://www.whitewallssf.com/) where this film amongst other street art docs will be playing."
