Artwalk 2018 Location: Massey's on 2nd, 2318 2nd Avenue North
Birmingprints are a collection of printed linocut blocks, impressions of the iconic and ordinary places of past and present Birmingham. Inspiration of the process comes from the artist’s background in product design and experience with printmaking, whose ethos is to provide unique, hand-made art affordable for all. Taken from sketches and photographs from the artist or the library archives, Birmingprints works to capture the Birmingham we have known, loved, or left.
