You can get FREE entry to The Other Art Fair on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week by showing a copy of this week’s Big Issue magazine at the door. Entry normally costs £10, so for your £2.50 you get a fabulous magazine PLUS a chance to see some cutting edge art.
The Other Art Fair is celebrating 20 years of bringing the best new breakthrough original art direct to art lovers’ walls, by cutting out the middlemen – and galleries – and allowing buyers to purchase directly from the artists themselves.
In association with our good friends Shangri-La, who invited us to join them at Glastonbury Festival earlier this summer, The Big Issue will have a wall in their ShangrilArt corner of the Fair, highlighting some of the Big Issue art exclusives – which will also be available to buy.
Ben Eine and Charming Baker
Ben Eine, who created the CELEBRATE cover (above) exclusively to mark the sale of the 200 millionth copy of The Big Issue, is giving us two prints to sell at the Fair – the Shutter and Circus renderings of his unique typographical masterpiece.
And the cover (below) created to celebrate The Big Issue’s 25th anniversary last year by Charming Baker, the artwork called Falling Man, will also be available to buy.
And if you say hello and sign up for our mailing list at The Big Issue stand, you will be entered into a draw to win one of the three prints.
