About the artist and work
About us: Anna & Luke started working together in the summer of 2019, designing and installing window artworks for Birmingam’s independent high street businesses. Trading under the name ‘Window Artists’ they later branched out into branding, graphic design and murals, winning some big contracts whilst aiming to use their skills to highlight causes close to their heart and champion the varied communities of this great city.
Arts education is to be slashed by 50% to prioritise ‘high value subjects’. Public campaigns have ridiculed the arts as dispensable ,having little value with worth based only on immediate profit and financial gain (Fatima could quit being a ballerina and get a proper job). The arts are becoming a playground for the rich with Tory policies creating a bottleneck system where only the wealthy and privileged can progress.
‘The Big B’ is a celebration of the visual-arts venues, organisations, collectives, studios and art groups in Birmingham that have started up or continued to exist in defiance of the hostile anti-arts Tory Britain. It is a love letter to those that nurture and encourage marginalised artists and communities. It’s a call to support the venues that exist on the fringes, inhabiting old warehouses and empty shops, many on precarious ground and in line to be torn down and developed into luxury flats. We’ve included 25 references to these and other institutions & festivals that make Birmingham the creative city it is, all compacted into a big B, maintained and supported by hard working individuals.
