Ben Eine

Eine shot to international fame when David Cameron presented one of his works to President Obama as a gift on his first official state visit in 2010 and is best known for his typography style with vibrant colors.

It is the world’s first airline to open commercial galleries, fittingly called 35,000 ft, across London Heathrow, JFK and Newark Clubhouses and as business class passengers take a seat, they can take a virtual tour of the artwork which include a number of original pieces by Ben Eine.The first exhibition features a collection of 10 artworks priced between £2,500 and £15,000, in Eine’s trademark typography style. Taking inspiration from Virgin Atlantic, owner Richard Branson and the iconic cities of London and New York, 35,000 ft. creates a unique experience for travels. On display at the London Heathrow Clubhouse is a one-of-a-kind, not for sale portrait of Richard Branson.

  1. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Many thanks

  2. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
