Ben Eine leads a street art takeover for The Big Issue

Street artists from all around the world have put their stamp on The Big Issue as we launch a special edition with guest editor and celebrated London artist Ben Eine.

“Getting the iconic street artist on board for the Art Special was a no-brainer,” according to Big Issue editor Paul McNamee who called Eine “a one-off”

Eine and Ourtypes have 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’. As well as curating the majority of the the art features through out the Magazine.

Each eye-catching cover 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.

Much of the artwork featured in the magazine will go on show at an exhibition at Jealous Gallery, Shoreditch, London.
