On September the 14th, I was travelling around South Birmingham searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 86: Twit Choo-Choo by Joseph Hewston (Design) and Glenn Anderson (Painter).
Joseph Hewston is 15 years old and attends King Edward VI school in Aston. He enjoys playing football, cricket and the saxophone.
Glenn Anderson is a Birmingham art legend, who sites ‘places, adventures, discovery, and the five+ sensory emotions’ as examples of the inspiration for his work. He believes that these experiences are caught and manifest themselves in strange ways, and that the human ‘amplifier’ needs to do something with that energy in positive ways. Glenn’s work features typography – both conventional and non-conventional – and he works in Biro, with aerosol, planks of weathered wood and rusted nails and much, much more.
