Introducing the #WEARABIGISSUE fashion brand. Art apparel that makes more than just a fashion statement.

In association with +rehabstudio and a collection of artists who have donated their talent, energy and creativity to the work of The Big Issue.

'Gentrify This' has been created by The Artful Dodger who says:

'I’m not a politician I’m not, an organisation, or a group of people trying to blah, blah, blah, it’s just me. A whisper in the dark, an echo in the wind; you can either listen or ignore.'

More about the Artist...
Best known for his letterform in the early 80s The Artful Dodger quickly gained notoriety and media attention for his unique calligraphy style tag. He went on to develop his art by painting inner-city walls transforming depressed urban areas with bright colour and innovative urban art. The design here is one of a series from a collection he calls ‘Fight Music’. “They’re theme songs and anthems which may cause the viewer/listener to respond in a similar manner were they to hear regular theme songs and anthems. It’s like play-dough or gum; if it’ll stick, then chances are, I’ll throw it.”

This is a Limited Edition artwork printed on an EarthPositive® T-shirt manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power.

EarthPositive® apparel is made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and ethical standards, in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, to promote awareness and take action on climate change. Organic Cotton + Ethically Traded + Carbon Neutral manufacturing = 100% Sustainable

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.
