From Wednesday (6 June) artist and musician Colin Gabbidon will present an exhibition of twenty of his paintings at The Drum in Aston, Birmingham. In Birmingham & the People Of, Colin has captured the beauty of Birmingham city, the people and their rich cultures from the 1920s to the present day. Featuring oil paintings, pastels and water colours tracing Birmingham's historical landmarks through the decades. I've known Colin for a few years and he's already exhibited his art in Germany and in his home town of Birmingham at the Symphony Hall and Central Library. He's sketched and painted many famous musicians which he's sold to retail outlets and is available for private commissions. When he's not painting, he's the drummer with reggae group Gabbidon, who are playing at The Jam House in Birmingham tonight. You can find out more about Colin here.
