New Don't Panic Poster


by Eine

As part of our celebrations to mark 10 years of the Don't Panic Poster, we invited Eine to create one of his handmade pieces for us. As you probably know, he's been pretty busy recently, but luckily we asked him before it all kicked off. You can watch a video of him making it, in more serene times, here.

Unfolded and signed copies will be available from the site in a little while.

Meanwhile check out our events section - the little Don't Panic logo will tell you where you can pick up our packs with the poster inside them.


Eine is one of London's most prolific and original street artists.

Anyone who visits London on a regular basis will be familiar with the giant letters and words that cover walls and shop shutters. Starting from the age of 14, Eine has been there from the start and is the man behind the printing of some of the most iconic works to come out of the Pictures on Wallsgallery, including Banksy, Faile and his own work.

Eine has been exhibited all over the world and key figure in the history of graffiti and street art.

His most recent work can be found on the Middlesex Street estate in central London. He will also be involved in a show at Electric Blue Gallery in September.



It's been 10 years since we started putting the Don't Panic poster in the packs and to celebrate we'll be holding an exhibition atStolenSpace Gallery in London in September.
