13 Jun Ben Eine – ‘Brave’ Wall
Ben Eine gave his support to a new Amnesty International campaign.
The artist painted the word BRAVE in honour of the people who fight for human rights. The giant mural is on a building in East London.
“I’ve been given fines for my work, done community service and made my mum cry, but that’s nothing compared with what other artists around the world have faced because their work challenges accepted ways of thinking.”
“We should all be free to express ourselves. From the safety of my comfort zone, I’m trying to support artists and others around the world to be brave. It’s important to stand up for them so they know the efforts they make for a better world and to challenge injustice don’t go unnoticed.”
You can find Ben Eine’s mural at 112 South St, Romford, RM1 1SS.
