This is Ben. I blogged his audrey piece last year and we ended up being friends through this magical world of the internet. We met up today in Soho and he treated me to some very yummy cake and coca-cola and sat outside chatting about everything art related. It was great to meet him and it was even more amazing to meet somebody who I have a lot of respect for as a person and as an artist. He’s incredibly sweet, ridiculously talented, and an overall really great guy. He’s a fine arts artist doing street art, tackling giant walls with brush strokes and showcasing people he admires. He’s passionate, and I am very lucky to call him a friend.
He promised me he’d start utilizing his tumblr more, we’ll see about that. But you should follow him, he posts his finished pieces and like I said, he’s a really great guy. He also has a flickr (which I snagged all these images from.) I’m all about great artists and great people, so Ben - thanks for the cake and the drink, you’re going to do amazing things, I know it. And thanks for the lovely chat this evening, you have been a great highlight to my London adventure!
