EINE is one of the hardest working and most prolific street artists today. His letter work is seen across London. His recent VANDALISM piece poses the brilliant question which Local Councils up and down the country are asking, should this work stay up? Over the years you may have also unwittingly touched EINE's handy work. 
EINE's skills run deep, as the actual screen-printer with the technical brilliance who has lovingly brought us the Iconic images of the last five years from his closest piers, Banksy, Faile, Insect and of course his own work from the pioneering and hugely influential POW.
Wowzers now thats impressive!!

Can you tell us a bit about where you are from?
Eine: I was born and grew up in London.
What did you want to be when you were a child?
Eine: When I was really young I wanted to be a train driver, when I was a little bit older the Bionic Man, but then I came to the realization that he was science fiction and that left me feeling flat and disappointed. Feeling like this, I started exploring the idea of creating a fantasy bionic world of my own and now I’m an Artist.
amazing_smallWhere do you find inspiration and influence on a daily basis?
Eine: It has a lot to do with what makes me laugh and things that amuse me.
shutters_smallWhat’s the best thing about the city you live in?
Eine: The fact that London is unique and everywhere you look something strange is happening.
Where is the best place to eat? Why?
Eine: Bagel shop on the top of Brick Lane, because it’s always open. At 4 in the morning it’s a good meeting place.
Best Gallery in your city?  
Eine: Tate Modern, because it’s one of the best in the world.
What do you think of the current climate of the art scene?
Eine: Before the credit crunch there was a real buzz but far too much money involved, now it’s more about painting and having fun.
What artists are changing the way we think at the moment?
Eine: Banksy is always good for ideas, Conor Harrington can paint, Paul Insect is dark.
SXH: Where do you see the art scene in 10 years time?
Eine: There will be a new bunch of kids making stuff that we don’t fully understand. They will make us look old and boring.
Whats green, fluffy and lives in your second drawer?
Eine: A sandwich.
