About Benjamin

Since graduating from Central Saint Martins College at London's University of Arts, British-born artist Benjamin Shine has grown to captivate the art world using simply a clothes iron and length of fabric, his sculptural portraits crafted from tulle famed for their otherworldly nature.

Recognized everywhere, with exhibitions from the New York MET to The UK Crafts Council, Benjamin has been named one of the most influential people shaping fashion today by the business of fashion (BOF), received the Enterprising Young Brit Award and Arts Export Award in Australia, and collaborated with the world's leading designers. Based between London, New York and Australia, Benjamin spoke with us about travel and creative life in NYC.
