Over the past decade, British abecedarian graffitist EINE has elevated tagging to high art with his global street art campaign of baroque psychedelic alphabets and cryptic non sequiturs. Unlike graffiti at large, however, his work has been met with with overwhelming praise worldwide and his work even resides in the White House after Obama traded British Prime Minister David Cameron an Ed Ruscha print for an Eine original. That said, the artist's latest solo show of fine art text-based & situational paintings, "Innocence" was justifiably greeted with overwhelming enthusiasm when it opened to the public at Corey Helford Gallery in LA last week. Have a look:
