Hosted by Qatar Art Spots, Founder Dana Said

About the Artist:

Ben Slow is an artist who emerged through the UK street art scene of the late 2000s. Having created large-scale murals across the UK and internationally, Ben's background in street art visibly informs his fine art studio practice. Born from the early days of throwing paint-filled balloons at walls, he combines an abstract 'drip-based aesthetic with refined portraiture, navigating the space between order and chaos. Stating that there is nothing scarier than a blank canvas, Ben uses an array of different materials and techniques to create his unique style, deconstructing, destructing, and blurring boundaries to strike a balance between figurative and abstract.

What to Expect:

A talk moderated by Dana Said highlights the artist's background, what it takes to take on a career as an artist, challenges, and opportunities.
