Our resident Photographer and Artist Karen Cross photographed Birmingham city centre just prior to Paradise Forum and the surrounding buildings being demolished, this was the entrance to the covered walkway between Victoria Square and Broad Street underneath the Old Library.

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.
