mac has been supporting artists for over 50 years and ensuring they are given opportunities for professional development. We regularly offer an emerging designer-maker the opportunity to take over one of our stalls during our market, allowing them to experience the process of selling first hand, promote their business and build up a customer base.
‘Funny Brummie Pictures’ – paintings reflecting the funny side of the city of Birmingham
Robert Geoghegan is an artist living and working in Birmingham, England – his home town. It’s a city that’s close to his heart, with its own unique brand of humour- there’s a little bit of Brummie in everyone. Rob hopes that his captioned pictures of everyday life will make the Brummie in you chuckle. Think of his works as a peek into the mind of an artist inspired by the funny, quirky world in which we live, and most importantly, the people who inhabit it.
