'Forget You Ever Saw Me’, an exhibition of original collages, paste-ups and screenprints by London street-artist Benjamin Irritant comes to specialist print gallery ATOM (Hackney, London) from 18th May - 8th June 2019.

About

Benjamin Irritant has gained a reputation as of one of London’s most original, hard-working and prolific street artists. His images of politicised rabbits holding placards with messages and slogans have earned him recognition not just on his home turf of East London, but internationally too, with his work appearing on streets from NYC to Kathmandhu.

Ben's work often originates from hand cut collages using found images from old books and magazines. He began putting them on the street with a budget of £1, photocopying the rabbits and cutting them out before sticking them up all over London with traditional wheat paste (flour and water) which he cooks up himself. He sees his work as a part of the historical tradition of protest in this country. The rabbits have grown in scale (now  standing at 6'6" / 2m tall) but their message remains the same.
