Our resident Photographer and Artist Karen Cross photographed Birmingham city centre, the Big Brum clock stands proud overseeing Victoria Square and while the Old Library is no longer there building stood out because of its impressive size and shape, you can see the building as you approach Birmingham on the train and everyone knows that that building is Selfridges.

While the photographs are striking Karen decided to add some colour, influenced by pop art and the vivid colours in pop art Karen wanted to give Birmingham a new look and atmosphere in her Art pieces.

By editing the photographs in close detail Karen painstakingly gave the photographs bright colours and illustrated the diversity of the city, the colours flow into each other just as the communities within Birmingham blend and flow alongside each other.
