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.

Robyn Forman is one such individual and describes what her work is about. “My work is about healing, forgiveness and reconciliation. Medicine leaves are a natural source and the medicine that I take that leaves the body. My other artwork available to buy is ‘Tapestry’ (see below) is about emotions weaving. Managing to get the correct dosage of medication for my bi-polar and Rheumatoid Arthritis has been crucial to enable me to recover. My inspiration is also about recovery, everyday I feel I am in recovery. When I work on a piece of art I go into a zone that is meditative. Making art also helps give me some relief from the chronic pain and stresses of managing everyday life”.
