Street art by Ben Slow
I paint what I sees – in the urban environment, in the media and in the people of the city that I love. Working from my London studio, I find an exciting dynamic in the contradictory relationship between the glamorous pop images and the raw, unrefined urban context in which such icons are celebrated. The point of my work is to reduce the silhouette to its most elegant and minimal, while simultaneously embellishing its energy, depth and texture. The process is as symbolic as it is aesthetic.
