Street Art across Birmingham, UK

Birmingham, in particular Digbeth and Southside, has one of the greatest collections of street art to be found anywhere in the world. Take our feature with trails and gallery - enjoy!


Here, with the help of our People with Passion and through featured posts, a growing gallery and links to further information with community, we look at the amazing street art and creativity that has become associated with Birmingham.

There is so much going on to promote and showcase the amazing creativity of our street artists with many exhibitions and galleries,

Our platform pulls together this Birmingham Passion in one easy to use online space.  

We're also in the process of creating an interactive map (including walk and cycle trails) so people can go and enjoy amazing creativity in street art. 

Birmingham is most definitely the city to enjoy incredible street art from an array of highly talented street artists. 

Whilst it was the arrival of a mural by Banksy that appeared one day in the City’s Jewellery Quarter that hit the headlines, Digbeth and Southside are where you can enjoy work from talented artists such as Gent-48, Annatomix, Lucy McLaughlan, Philth (aka Phil Blake), N4T4 (aka Nathan Parker), Wing (aka Simon Wingfield), Foka Wolf, Justin Sola, Andrew 'Title' Mills and many more.

In 2020, an initiative from Art4Charity led by Prof. Paul Cadman, commissioned highly talented street artist gent48 to create a mural called 'Forward in Unity' as a tribute to the NHS and the emergency services following the Covid19 pandemic.  This amazing example of street art can be seen in Digbeth at the junction Meriden Street and Coventry Street in Digbeth.

Legendary Birmingham street artist Annatomix has painted her pieces around Birmingham City Centre.
