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 4: Nature’s Growth by Goosensei.
Matt Barber (a.k.a. ‘Goosensei) is a Birmingham-based artist who has a background in street art. He looks towards the natural world for inspiration, emulating shapes found in plant life to create his densely patterned pieces, in combination with the ‘raw’ style of street art.
He has recently showcased his mural work at the extremely successful Birmingham Street Art Festival City of Colours and had his works featured in the Birmingham Mail.
