ABOUT THE ART
Street artists from all around the world are putting their stamp on The Big Issue next week as we launch a one-off special edition with guest editor and celebrated London artist Ben Eine. Eine is one of the most celebrated street artists in the world and a pioneer of graffiti letterforms. If you remember back to 2016, he also designed an exclusive ‘CELEBRATE’ cover to mark the sale of our 200 millionth copy and has been a friend and supporter of the magazine ever since.
From Monday, vendors will hit the streets with the exclusive 52-page magazine showcasing artwork contributed by more than 60 high-profile global street artists including Pure Evil, Anthony Lister, Obey, Lauren YS and Vhils.
Not only that, but Eine has created three very special – and hugely collectable – front covers on the theme of UP, to coincide with the Big Issue mantra of ‘a hand up, not a hand out’.
Each eye-catching design carries a version of his signature typography and will be available in a small run of limited edition prints – with a percentage of sales going directly to The Big Issue to support the fight against poverty.
