As part of The Creative City Exhibition we're auctioning one of a kind prints from our 99 artists, with most of the prints signed (shown in title – however, if listed unsigned we can work to get it signed for you), this is your opportunity to own a piece of BDF history.
Each poster is sized 800x1200mm on satin blue-back billposter paper, the same size as shown in the exhibition with postage included in the auction price. (due to the nature of the paper there may be some minor creases and inperfections.
In order to make a bid you must create an account. Successfull bidders will be required to pay on completion of the auciton.
50% of the sales from each poster will go to the artist, 40% to BDF to help support the festival and 10% to homeless charity SIFA Fireside
About the artist and work
Helen has been working as a commercially successful artist for the last 20 years, and is Course Director of BA Illustration at Birmingham City University. Her work is mainly narrative illustration, but also spans into animation and surface pattern design. She is always trying out a new process, and is currently loving the sense of fun that can be achieved by combining her drawings with collage elements, as you can see from her BDF submission!
My interpretation of ‘The Creative City’ stems from my current position as Course Director for BA Illustration at BCU, and represents my lovely students. They are a bunch of creative gems, and nothing gives me more pleasure than watching them grow; as people, as creatives, and as they join the wider creative community in Birmingham. They inspire me every single day, and never fail to surprise me with their fresh ideas and confidence. Helping them connect to an amazing range of creative people, and organisations, within the city is our absolute pleasure within the illustration team. How better to represent them being part of our amazing city, than as the coolest birds in Brum??
