Digbeth in Colour

Our readers who are familiar with Digbeth’s vibrant street art scene may be familiar with the work of Glenn Anderson. Glenn was responsible for the colourful piece at the crossing of Bradford Street and Rea Street pictured above.

A few months ago, I asked Glenn whether he would be able to paint a picture of the Birmingham skyline as seen from Digbeth. With the city changing apace, I wanted to preserve how we see the city now, since (sob) it’s unlikely that I’ll be living here forever.

Glenn came back with the goods, and oh my, didn’t he just exceed my expectations! Glenn is pictured holding his work outside the Spotted Dog below.

The canvas and frame was sourced from Harris Moore, based at Minerva Works on Fazeley Street, and all the other materials came from Digbeth, meaning this piece of art was truly Made in Digbeth.

If you would be interested in buying a print of Glenn’s work, please do get in touch and this can be arranged. Similarly, if you would like to commission Glenn for your own project, please do get in touch with him by email or via his website.
