Line is a key element in almost all forms of art. Lines allow us to draw both from imagination, and what we see everyday. Lines enable us to take others on a journey, and show them what we see through our art. Paul Klee used line in inventive ways to create abstract scenes of places he visited.
Paul Klee is a key inspiration of Birmingham based graphic artist Alex Edwards – known as Brumhaus. Alex Edwards depicts familiar scenes of Birmingham’s ever-changing skyline, as seen from his commute to work – a journey he made every day.
