Limited Edition Art Wrapping Paper - Selection Pack of 5 Designs

Make your gifts extra special this year by wrapping them up in our Limited Edition Art Wrapping Paper.

There are 5 pieces of wrap included in this pack, each designed by a collaborating artist, who have given their time and artistic talents to support The Big Issue.

Leading the way with his SCARY wrap is Ben Eine, one of the most celebrated street artists in the world and a pioneer of graffiti letterforms. Already an iconic figure amongst graffiti artists, Eine crossed into the mainstream in 2010 when David Cameron presented Barack Obama with one of his works as a gift.

Other artists include contemporary artist Sara Pope is well known for her bold, seductive paintings of voluptuous lips, Rene Robbins (Baubles design) and John Sheehy (Stars and Donkeys design) both of whom have experienced periods of homelessness and have since found solace and a wonderful talent for art. They are also regular contributors to the Street Art section in The Big Issue magazine.

And last but certainly not least is our very own Lord John Bird, founder of The Big Issue with a colourful variation of his artwork entitled “I never knew Walt Disney”

Each piece measures 70cm x 50cm and is folded into a cello pack of 5 designs.

All the profit from this wrapping paper goes directly back to The Big Issue to give people living on the margins a hand up.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
