Brumhaus (Alexander Edwards), British, 1974
Brumhaus is the work of Birmingham born Alexander Edwards. He produces prints which explore architecture and modernism, using geometric forms and patterns.
Alexander’s unique, hard-edged, graphic style was developed during his early career as a designer, sketching drafts before using creative software to draw his work.
He takes his inspiration from the built environment, portraying cityscape views and landmarks of Birmingham and the Midlands. With influences from artists Picasso and Klee, and from Cubism to Bauhaus his work blends the recognisable and the abstract, trying to find a unique view or sense of a place.
What starts out as a compositional pencil sketch, of either a real view or a montage of individual elements brought together, is finally developed as a digital artwork. The final pieces are created as giclée art prints.
