About the artist and work
I would describe myself as a graphic artist who hybridises analogue and digital media, I am interested in the unique textures created when using analogue media. I’m currently working as a junior graphic designer at Birmingham City FC. During my time at university I was co-director of BCU Print Club and led collage and Risograph printing workshop sessions with students at BCU and outside colleges.
For my piece I hybridised analogue and digital media, using a range of mixed media including illustration, screen-printing, Letraset and Risograph printing, then manipulated it and put it together digitally. I was inspired by Pop Art for this piece and wanted to create a strong typographic presence by using the traditional Bird’s custard can, the link to the theme Creative City comes from the can and it’s link to the Custard Factory which is a creative hub in Birmingham.
