MAKE IT YOURS: BEN
STRUCTURE HIS ENVIRONMENT
Ben is a Manchester-based artist who is known locally for his unique abstract artwork which has taken over various stores, graffiti spots, and objects across the city. It is the city itself that provides Ben his biggest inspiration, using his surroundings as the groundwork for the visual design which has allowed him to establish a style that is synonymous with his name. The abstract geometric shapes play on the structure of his environment, while the colours express a symmetry with the graffiti culture that lines the streets of Moston.
He has a broad spectrum of artwork in his catalogue and regularly moves between different mediums such as murals, clothing, and digital art. Otherwise known as FVB (From Virginia Ben), he states that “…art is everything to him” and explains how his art forms a major part of his everyday life. Much of Ben’s artistic inspiration comes from Manchester, the city he was raised in. The creative history of the city and its working-class roots have given Ben the spark that he needs to pursue his creative career as an artist. This background has given him a mindset built for hard work and perseverance.
Ben’s rocking this season’ New Era collection, a selection of garments with New Era’s heritage and DNA at their core. He pairs our brown New Era Varsity jacket with Oversized Brown Hoodie, topped off with a fitting look for the fall.
