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.

Steve McIntosh taught himself to draw at a young age by reading and imitating DC and Marvel superhero comics. ‘My drawing feels more technical than artistic; puzzles, crosswords and historical facts influence my thoughts and occupy my time, though my work comes from my imagination. I don’t feel in any rush when working, just take my time, each line is considered, not instinctive. I’m not sure why my landscapes and towns often lack people, maybe because I like solitude.’
