Discover a Seasonally Rotating Outdoor Art Gallery at Leeds Dock
Don’t miss artwork by local artists Benjamin Craven and Edan MF, both individually and collaboratively as Two Times, on display at Leeds Dock in 2021.
Benjamin Craven is inspired by everyday sights and occurrences; from the bright colours of the supermarket cleaning aisle, to architectural collisions – high, low, and all around. The surroundings of the day-to-day makes up his source of inspiration and, through his work, he sets out to encourage the viewer to consider playfulness in art and life. Using found textures, clashing colours, and patterns, his heavy use of geometric lines make for a bold signature style. Using screen-printing, digital format and paint to encapsulate the world through his eyes, Craven has collaborated with names such as Brancott Estate, Today at Apple, and the Hayward Gallery in London.
Edan MF focuses heavily on architecture and the forms within, whilst adding an illustrative twist to create a world of its own, with numerous well-known projects behind his belt including the reimagining of The Brunswick in 2019.
Two Times is a constantly developing collaboration between Benjamin Craven and Edan MF, combining both their styles to create an artistic language of its own.
