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.

Yellow by Glenn Anderson

On September the 22nd, I was dashing around Birmingham City Centre searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 25: Yellow by Glenn Anderson on the roof at the Custard Factory. This was the only owl that was inaccessable as there was no lift going up to the rooftop leaving me, and other owl spotters, a little bit miffed. It was impossible to get a better photograph than this one without a zoom lens, but my glimpse from afar and this owls name suggests that it was merely plain yellow and therfore not very photogenic. This snapshot is proof that I saw all 89 owls in their temporary habitat of Birmingham. It is still not too late to sponsor me for completing this brilliantly daft challenge and to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Miah Gill is a student at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull. She won the Lloyds Bank Competition to design an owl and working with artist Glenn Anderson, they produced Nightingale. Inspired by the song Nightingale by American recording artist Demi Lovato, the owl’s design captures the essence of the music; a lonely owl perches on a branch, looking out across a busy cityscape and watching the birds fly away, under the moon’s haunting light.
