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

This piece is called <Afternoon Drink>. I used to live nearby the Birmingham canal. Every day after work, on my way back home, I can see many people drinking in the pub by the river, and ducks swim by. Sometimes, I wonder what kind of person they are in daily life. Then, I created this lil drawing, each character lives their own life but also has another part of life doing what they passionate about. I think that’s what I like about Birmingham, creative also down to earth.
