Up close, the man behind this incredible artwork can only be described as what Johnny Depp would look like if he was slightly shorter, unkempt and lived in borderline squalor in the depths of East London. I present to you Ben Slow. His work is incredible, finding an dynamic in glamorous pop images, and the raw, unrefined urban context in which such icons are celebrated: exploring the contradictory relationship between the two.
