Have you spotted Ben Eine’s latest street art piece? The British typography virtuoso has left his distinctive graphic mark on 8 Octavia, a mixed-use condominium development, in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley.
Eine hand-painted the colossal words ‘Amuseument Times’ on the construction bridge site over a three-day period last week. He was joined by Amsterdam-based designer/artist Niles “Shoe” Meulman, who added “un-unhappy time” in his brush-painted caligraffiti.
Check out this short interview with Ben Eine and great footage of him painting at 8 Octavia. It’s inspiring to hear him describing Street Art as “socially aware”. “It’s about doing something that’s going to make a difference, that people are going to admire,” says Eine.
