About the artist and work
Alexander Edwards (known as Brumhaus) creates unique graphic artworks of architecture and urban landscapes. He has been producing prints in his hard-edged style since 2015, portraying various views of Birmingham, London and elsewhere. He explains his process, ‘I create a pencil sketch based on either a real view or a combination of different architectural elements. Then I redraw a few times on layout paper, usually working to a grid. Once the composition looks right I redraw it digitally.
Functional cities run like machines, each building is a vital component providing user experience and housing places of learning and work. My submission portrays the buildings of the city of Birmingham. I created a semi abstract image as a montage of architectural elements using geometric shapes and patterns.
