Street Art: Giving Marginalised Individuals an Outlet for Creative Expression

Every week in The Big Issue, our Street Art page gives talented, marginalised individuals an outlet for creative expression, as well as a platform to sell their prints through The Big Issue Shop.

David Martin is a Big Issue vendor whose pitch is at Hammersmith in London. His love of Henri Matisse inspired him to try his hand at producing his own artworks, comprising abstract designs made from coloured card. “One of my customers took me to see Matisse paintings at the Tate Modern because he thought they were similar,” he says. “I was blown away.”
