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
Antonio Roberts is an artist and curator based in Birmingham, UK, working primarily with video, code, and sound. He is critically engaged with the themes surrounding network culture and in his practice explores how technology continues to shape ideas of creation, ownership, and authorship. As a performing visual artist and musician he utilises live coding techniques to demystify technology and reveal its design decisions, limitations, and creative potential.
Walking in the City reflects on the changing landscape of Birmingham, and how its uniqueness is made by the people that live in it, not through precise city planning. The near constant rebuilding of Birmingham has changed how we experience and interact with it. Each new revision creates a new creative playground and an opportunity for us to make the city our own.
