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.”
