Local artist Kirk Andrews brings his latest collection of music icon portraits to Birmingham’s West Side this summer for a three month solo show opening in August.

50 beautifully detailed drawings in charcoal and Indian ink will grace the walls of the Velvet Music Rooms, from Brum’s own Ozzy and Tony Iommi to Amy Winehouse, Debbie Harry, Prince, Iggy Pop, David Bowie and many more.

There will also be opportunities to see Kirk in action creating new work at the venue, as well as workshops and meet the artist sessions.

Everything in the exhibition is available for sale with framed originals and limited edition prints from £50-£695 in sizes to suit all spaces. And Kirk can be contacted for special commissions too.

Kirk said: “I have a lifelong passion for music and I love the way my art connects me with music and its stars.

This is my largest solo show to date and I have got to give Birmingham Art Zone and Velvet Music Rooms a massive thank you for this fantastic opportunity.

It means so much to have my latest collection in this unique venue at the heart of Birmingham’s vibrant music scene.

Visitors to my exhibition can grab a drink, eat and enjoy live music, or even watch a match – so this is a really relaxed and quite different way of enjoying art.”
