On September the 19th, I was rolling around Birmingham City Centre searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 14: Dr Whoot by Stephen McKay.
Stephen McKay is a Liverpool-based artist, who likes to work in public and uses large studio spaces, where passers-by can watch him create his very public artworks!
A qualified development chemist, Stephen enjoys experimenting with new materials and decorating techniques. He devised a method for his partner, Janet Fishwick, to paint over 4,000 individual pearl buttons onto her ‘Pearly Mandeville’ for the 2012 Wild in Art Olympic Mascot Trail.
