43. Jess Webberley – The Creative City Poster (signed)
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
I’m Jess, a Midlands based creative with a passion for making things that visually, or audibly transcend reality. Between the hours of 9am & 5:50pm you can find me working as a UX/UI Designer for e-commerce brands. Outside of those hours, I like to create posters and music. These are not mutually exclusive from one another, and often end up correlating with and influencing each other. I like to create pieces that give the viewer, or listener, the feeling that they are being taken elsewhere. I would probably cite space, architecture, and dreams as my biggest influences.
For my submission, I aimed to include recognisable aspects of Birmingham and combine those with what Birmingham means to me. Within my piece you can see the Birmingham flag, the old library, an ode to the Selfridges building, and of course John Baskerville’s ‘Baskerville’ font in use. Along with the Birmingham imagery, I have included shapes / symbols that relate to my music project ‘Graywave’. The archway containing stairs leading up to a star symbolises the way I see Birmingham and the part it has played in my creative journey.
