A street artist is opening a pop-up shop, but he doesn’t want your money...

Well known for his circus-style lettering around Old Street and Shoreditch – and his awesome tribute to the Grenfell Fire victims earlier this year – Ben Eine is now creating a unique pop-up called the Data Dollar Store. His prints normally sell out quicker than you can say ‘OMG I FREAKIN’ LOVE STREET ART SO MUCH,’ so this pop-up is a rare chance to get your hands on one of his limited editions. But wait – put your wallets away. Eine doesn’t want your stinkin’ money.  

He wants to get paid in your ‘personal data’… All very mysterious, and yeah, a little creepy. The pop-up is aiming to question customers’ awareness of cybercrime and is being done in partnership with cyber security giant Kaspersky Lab, so maybe that’s a clue as to what they have in store.

The Data Dollar Store will be open in Old Street Station from Sep 6-7, 8:30am-7pm. Find out more about Ben Eine and his work on his Instagram.
