Dripping Wall Murals (8 pieces)


Ben Slow is a talented portrait artist from London. His subjects range from beautiful starlets to pop culture icons. "Working frommy 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 ofmy 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," Slow shares.

"Texture is a vital part of mywork andthe expressive portraits are richly detailed through a deceptively intricate process of layering and coloring. This is particularly noticeable in the large scale works such as those at the Royal Albert Hall or inthe various street pieces.The larger the piece, the more room there is for his expressive techniques to run free."
