This summer curious minds of all ages are invited to step inside the whimsical and wonderful world of machines and cartoons created by eccentric English inventor Rowland Emett.
The quirky moving machines, or automata as they are known, includes items from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, fantastical flying machines, and a bicycle for cycling across the moon. Many larger than life surprises will astound and spark the imagination.
This exhibition will be the biggest ever display of Emett’s work, which is loved by many across the world and will tell the story of his life living and working in Birmingham.
I went to this brilliant exhibition in Birmingham last week...
This was just the most mad, magical and funny exhibition I've ever seen and opened up the world of a previously unknown artist to me! Its only on for a few more weeks till September 21st, if you in the area I would urge anyone to go!
I'm Kat and I'm an illustrator living and working in Bath in the UK. This blog is a record of my artwork, projects and anything I think is interesting, I hope you'll read a little of my ramblings!
