Are you interested to start a career as an artist, do you want to have first-hand experience on how to take your street art to commissioned projects. You are lucky because there is a meet and greet session today from 6 pm till 7 pm for the artist Ben Slow.
Hosted by Qatar Art Spots, Founder Dana Said
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.
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.
