Street Artist Ben Eine Creates ‘The Review’ A Massive Mural in the Heart of London’s Olympic Park

Inspiring City

Ben Eine, the man who made his name painting stylised lettering all around the East End of London has created his biggest mural yet, a 385 metre painting on hoardings close to the aquatic centre in the Olympic Park.

Part of the Living Walls project which seeks to create a series of World Class artworks in and around the Olympic Park. The mural is made up of an amalgamation of fourteen different words, each describing an aspect of the park or the games, hence the name of the mural ‘The Review‘.

The words are ‘History, Abstract, Passionate, Traditional, Captivating, Pioneering, Survival, Spontaneous, Breathtaking, Individuality, Iconic, Connections, Storytelling and Idea’.
