first_imgThe Cullen, an Art Series Hotel in Prahran, Melbourne, has partnered with UK street artist Ben Eine to create a one-of-a-kind artwork using elements of his distinctive typographic style in a new Street Art Suite. Titled ‘Missing You’, the artwork is a love letter to his French girlfriend and brings the spirit of Melbourne’s laneway culture into the hotel.In town recently to join 25 of the hottest urban artists to create a multi-sensory art experience in Richmond, Eine spent two weeks at The Cullen and was invited to makeover one of its deluxe studio suites.Born in London, Eine is one of the world’s most successful street artists and is regarded as a pioneer in the exploration of graffiti letterforms. His bright and colourful letters were created to stand out from the usual tags seen on the streets and can still be found in areas of East London. Eine first came to prominence in the ‘commercial’ street art scene through his working relationship with London graffiti artist Banksy. In 2010 the UK Prime Minister David Cameron gifted his artwork to President Obama. His work is currently held in the permanent collections of the V&A, London, The Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles and galleries worldwide, while his street art works can be seen all over the world, most recently he completed a huge mural on the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi.Each of The Cullen’s Street Art Suites feature a personalised stamp left by the artist, as well as Adam Cullen artworks and books, to create to create an immersive art experience. Eine is the fifth street artist to be featured, joining the ranks of Swoon, Blek le Rat, D*Face and Stormie Mills.The Ben Eine Suite at The Cullen is now available to book.
