Our resident Photographer and Artist Karen Cross photographed Birmingham city centre and the Rotunda stands out because of its size and shape, you can see the building from most angles as you walk through Birmingham and everyone knows the Rotunda.

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.
