The Big Issue is delighted to reveal that the edition of April 3 will be an art special, guest edited by Charming Baker, one of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary artists. Built on a theme of Tipping Point, the special edition of the magazine will feature an array of British visual art heavyweights, all contributing unique and bespoke work.

In honour of the art special edition, Charming Baker has reached out to the Art World and asked individuals to delve into their work archives and pick a piece of art representing a ‘Tipping Point’. The contributors assembled from Charming Baker’s vast contact book reads like a who’s-who of Brit Art and fashion. They include Jonathan Yeo, Sir Peter Blake, Rachel Howard, Hugo Wilson, Antony Micallef, Mat Collishaw, Keith Tyson, Sue Webster & Tim Noble, David Shrigley and Sir Paul Smith. It’s testament to The Big Issue’s value in British society that these, and many others, signed up straight away to do what they could to get involved.

In keeping with The Big Issue focus, this special magazine will also feature art by men and women on the edge of society, either suffering from addiction, mental health or homelessness issues who have used art as a means and outlet in facing problems in their lives. The edition is set to be an Arts tour de force and one of British magazine publishing’s most collectible and hotly anticipated titles of the year.
