Rise up. Stand up. Speak out.

Issue 1400


This week we’ve got an Arts Special edition of The Big Issue with celebrated street artist Ben Eine taking over as our guest editor.
Eine is one of the most celebrated street artists in the world and a pioneer of graffiti letterforms. Back in 2016, he also designed an exclusive ‘CELEBRATE’ cover to mark the sale of The Big Issue’s 200 millionth copy and has been a friend and supporter of the magazine ever since.
For this magazine, Eine has created a visual feast and has also spread his net around the world and brought together over 60 high-profile artists that have contributed to the magazine and the accompanying exhibition at London’s Jealous Gallery.
The one-off magazine features three different front covers around the theme of ‘UP’. Each eye-catching and highly collectable design carries a version of his signature typography.
Read the words from the man himself with an exclusive interview about rebellion, the power of art and becoming a Big Issue guest editor.

To mark our new Arctic Monkeys exclusive interview, we’ve picked out some of our best band and musician interviews from the past, featuring Arctic Monkeys (2018), When Jarvis met Bowie, The Specials, Debbie Harry and more. Sign up to our mailing list to receive your free digital copy.
