Ben Playle is a designer, artist and maker of fine furniture. He uses hand cut stencils and spray paint to create multi layered pictures. These range from simple three layered studies to more complex and many layered fine art stencils, some of which take weeks to cut. With over twenty years of fine wood working, he applies this experience in the manufacture of precision stencils. Ben spent many years as an artist and furniture maker in Southern and East Africa before moving to New York City – and more recently to Amman.
Immersing himself in his environment, Ben creates his pieces through close observation of the country in which he lives. Ben’s style continues to develop and evolve as he explores different subjects and materials, his work a cross pollination of fine art landscapes and the use of refined street art techniques.
