This fantastic poster features a brand new artwork which celebrates Birmingham and its people, recently revealed by satirical collage artist Christopher Spencer, aka Cold War Steve, and Birmingham Museums Trust.
The hugely detailed work, Benny's Babbies, is the artist's most complex photo collage of his career to date! Spot comedian Joe Lycett and cricketer Moeen Ali, alongside Duran Duran and activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, with the members of Black Sabbath rocking out on top of the Rotunda building behind, where Benny from TV soap opera Crossroads (filmed in Birmingham) peers out over the crowd full with many more famous and recognisable Brummie faces.
The background of Benny's Babbies is the View of St Martin's Church Birmingham from the Bullring, 1815-1835, by Thomas Hollins, which features on a japanned tray. The backdrop has been updated with familiar city scenes, including the Birmingham Pride Festival, the brutalist architecture of the now demolished Central Library, Birmingham's beloved Mr. Egg takeaway, and the Central Birmingham Mosque.
Poster size: A2. The poster is printed with a white border that frames the design.
