11. Barbara Gibson – The Creative City Poster (signed)
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
Over the last 7 years I have invested a great deal of time to develop new techniques and practices within art. It is how my artistic and commercial journey in Illustration and Collage making began. I often use vintage magazines from mid-twentieth century to create socially engaged pieces applied in a humorous and unprecedented way. My work can be read as a non-narrative celebration of the present and the past or as insightful observations of realities I playfully mix and merge.
In my response I wanted to show the city the way I see it since I become a Brummie 7 years ago.
It’s such a diverse city that constantly develops its potential that is full of colour, creative people, and perspectives for the future. Birmingham’s rich heritage not only inspire but also gives a room for the past and the present to become one.
