Artist: Ben Slow
The more I look at artists who engage with a strong notion of social responsibility, the more I get drawn to contemporary street artists. Ben Slow is known for large murals in public spaces. This image here depicts a English Defence League (EDL) member and a member of an extreme Muslim sect. This image is interesting to me and my work, in scale, content and subject. A lot of my work is Luton based and having the leader of the EDL come from Luton and a number of the extreme Muslim groups are local as well.
