A Line is Drawn

Ben Slow

Jealous East

28 Sep 2017 — 01 Oct 2017

Ben Slow’s solo exhibition ‘A line is drawn’ features new original works, created and re-created over the past year. The title signifies the artist’s own battle with his practice, breaking away from the work he has become comfortable and synonymous with, and creating truly expressive works, which have evolved through Slow’s persistence and dedication in pushing himself outside of his comfort zone.

Slow quickly became a well-known name in the art world thanks to his large-scale and commanding black and white murals across London. Being continuously fascinated and inspired by chance meetings of colourful characters, his street work focused on celebrating local personalities, immortalising them in the locations they're closely connected with.
Made up of images personally collected over the past few years, this new body of work shows a move in direction for the artist. The show is heavily influenced from Ben’s personal battle with anxiety and OCD, in which Slow has never before engaged in his practice.
