Artist Ben Rider takes his fluoro ink obsession to the streets



London based artist and illustrator Ben Rider better known to some by his street name Zombiesqueegee has been recently hitting the streets of East London with a vibrant series of layered hand screen printed posters.

According to Rider his; 'work is built up from a dense hybrid of drawings, collaged imagery and multi – layered colours'. He is also 'a big fan the offsets, drips and fades to create an authentic distressed aesthetic'. His love of screen printing and fluorescent inks is evident in both his gallery pieces and the striking wheat pasted street works.

Rider is also part of print posse Fatherless — a collaborative print collective from the US & UK, consisting of artist Jarrod Hennis, Javier Jimenez, Greg Lang, Dave Menard and Rider. The collective were in the UK ealier this year for an exhibition of their print works at Stour Space, in Hackney Wick.  Titled 'Alternative Facts', the show featured many of the collectives collaborative screen printed works. If you missed the show you can see a selection of images of the work we shared on the blog if you follow the link below.



It’s not the first time we have seen the artists work on the city streets, we featured Rider’s work earlier in the year when he installed a variety of printed works with fellow street artists and printers Aida Wilde and Donk. The recent collection of works pictured here have been wheat pasted to walls and doors around Shoreditch and Brick Lane in East London, take a look at the collection of images we photographed.
