Award-winning artist and designer, Benjamin Shine has established a multi-disciplined creative approach dedicated to challenging perceptions through original constructional ideas and craftsmanship. Following his studies in fashion design at Central St Martins in London, Benjamin has spent over a decade exploring the potential of materials to express ideas through his artworks, public sculptures, fashion, furniture, and product designs. Benjamin is most known for his tulle works, which centre on ideas of impermanence, energy and the fleeting moment – each made by pleating and manipulating the delicate material into form with an iron and often generated from a single uncut length of tulle.
Benjamin's Tulle Flows are a continuos single length of flowing tulle, each conveying clarity out of chaos, hence the depiction of faces in states of peaceful meditation.
Benjamin's work has attracted a range of clients encompassing fashion labels, product and interior manufacturers, international Arts and Design institutions such as The Crafts Council, UK and The New York Museum of Arts and Design. Global brands include Givenchy, Barclays Wealth, MTV, Eurostar, Deutsche Bank, Coca-Cola and Google
His 2013 fashion collaboration with Givenchy saw him develop his signature tulle technique alongside Givenchy’s Creative Director, Riccardo Tisci, creating a limited edition series, which blurred the lines between art, sportswear and Haute Couture. Most recently, Benjamin was invited to collaborate with John Galliano for Maison Margiela. The resulting work of couture was shown at Paris fashion week 2017 and received worldwide recognition.
Benjamin has become one of the most wanted artists in NY after his famous installation “Seeing Through The Material” at Bergdorf Goodman, 5th Avenue, New York.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has already acquired Benjamin's works.
