Emma Hardicker is a local artist who’s exhibited in that many places around Birmingham that I’m surprised I’ve not come across her before:
This print is based on Birmingham’s iconic buildings. There are twelve recognisable pieces of architecture in the silkscreen print, placed together to create an architectural pattern in an illustrative way. Have fun trying to find them all
On her about page we learn the following:
I work as an artist producing clean, crisp prints, full of colour, texture and strong pattern. I am a member of Birmingham Printmakers, where I specialise in silkscreen printing. I design and hand print my work to make quality finished pieces of art for your wall. Working from my studio, I also create paintings in oils and acrylics creating landscapes of pattern in rich colours
She has a few prints and cards on sale as well as a poster available via the TfL website, created as part of The Outer Limits – Beyond Zone 1 Poster Competition.
Thanks to Rob Strong, who saw Emma’s work at the Botanical Gardens over the weekend, for the heads up.
