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
Luke Skinner has always been a prolific doodler. What started as cartoons and bubble writing stuck to my Mum’s office wall became a lifelong passion for creativity. He specialises in branding and illustration and is most happy when he can combine the two. He takes influences from everywhere and anywhere, from animation, to graffiti, to mid-century advertising and has worked with clients all over the UK and Europe as well as the US and UAE. He lives near Birmingham with his wife Aimee and his St. Bernard Honey. He is still a prolific doodler.
I grew up in Stourbridge, so whilst I’m not a true Brummie, I am Brummie adjacent. Last year I returned to the Midlands after 10 years away which had me reminiscing about all the things I enjoyed growing up in the here. I believe that as creative people we’re influenced by the things around us, particularly in our formative years, whether we know it or not. For me, growing up here has given me a wealth of experiences and memories, whether it was watching the Gladiators at the NIA, eating
a yearly, giant hot dog at the Christmas market or buying my wife’s engagement ring at the Jewellery Quarter. I hope there’s some other millennial Midlanders out there that this piece resonates with, that shared some of those experiences.
