Jacques Nimki in Erdington

Not content with colonising Digbeth every summer the IKON is invading Erdington:

As part of Birmingham City Council’s Arts Champion Scheme, artist Jacques Nimki has designed a range of brightly coloured banners that line Erdington’s High Street. The works feature wild fl owers that grow in the area, as observed by the artist on a research trip. To mark the twinned relationship between Ikon and Erdington, Nimki has also created a large, vibrant banner showing similar imagery, located in front of the gallery building.

Nimki, you’ll remember, was responsible for creating a meadow in a Digbeth warehouse this summer.

The banners go up on Tuesday 25th.
