“I create paintings that tell the story of the athletes and capture the success of the Olympics from a British perspective.”
Ben created his Olympic Mural ‘We Are One’ during the first week of the London Olympic Games. The mural celebrates how Olympians come from the people, demonstrates the best traits of the human spirit and shows the special relationship that all sports men and women have with the British public.
The mural was painted directly onto a wall and documents Team GB’s ongoing success. It shows athletes competing in various different sports throughout the Games and contains inspirational slogans used by the team. Each time a British Olympian won a medal, their name was honoured within the mural.
