Life, Death & Other Colours  - Life Death & Other Colours

Our February show is from one of Brighton’s best-loved artists, Ben Allen.

Working in a multitude of media and materials, Allen draws energy and inspiration from many pockets of life such as typography, Punk, skateboarding, life, death, the female form, Pop Art and from colourful places such as Rio and Mexico.

This show will feature fresh, exciting & unseen-before paintings, surprising 3D pieces as well as some enticing limited editions prints. Come and feast your eyes on a delicious assortment of glossy and stunning paintings ranging from mini to maxi sizes. You will also be able to get cosy in Ben Allen’s very own boudoir installation room upstairs at Ink_d. This will be the first ever Ben Allen Bespoke exhibition and will feature lavish wallpaper, cool cushions, a hot pink Revolver coffee table and many more delectable items from his interior design collection. Finally, don’t miss out on Ben Allen’s progressive art project outside the gallery, where he will be inviting you to take part and make art on a massive collective canvas.

Describing his own work, the artist says “My work is representative of taking layers of time, recreating something that you can’t have control over, but in a controlled manner. I take all the pieces and make my own world.”
