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
Liu Mengxia practice focuses on developing reportage illustration and perspective drawing which explores the relationship between illustrative representation and narrative. Using a visual ethnographic approach, my method is a tool which gives a voice to under-represented communities. My work is illustrative in form and strives to create new approaches to representational practice that reflect the complexities of the multicultural world in which we live. In essence, my work articulates a relationship between the visual world and the complex stories of communities.
This work is based on a commission from The Hive Jewellery Quarter. They are a community of makers in an old historic building. It always nice to see the creative community hidden in the old buildings behind the modern Birmingham. The work
depicts the shapes of the old and new buildings around Birmingham.
