Window to Freedom

  • 9th–23rd June
  • Exhibition

Exploring the theme of ‘Freedom’ for Design Festival Birmingham 2022 I will be drawing on the windows of independent bars in Birmingham.  Working in partnership with each bar we have collaborated on what Freedom means to them which I have then responded to with illustrations.

Cherry Reds menu is full of vegan and natural ingredients which has inspired me to plan a drawing around nature which will start with flower characters growing on the ground floor, right up to birds of freedom flying around on the 2nd floor windows.

With Bonehead I have focused on fashion, creating Flappa chicken wings which are a parody of the Kappa brand.

The Juke in Kings Heath will be celebrating the LGBTQ+ community through their freedom window design.

The windows of the Wildcat in Stirchley will be used as a canvas for giant letters expressing some of the values linked to freedom.

The windows will be on show from Thursday June 9th for two weeks.
