Note: Ben Eine's street art can be seen on storefronts all over the world.

The full alphabet, similar to this work, can be seen in on Middlesex Street in East London. It was renamed Alphabet Street by the residents and described by The Times as "a street now internationally recognized as a living piece of art with direct links to The White House".
