Shed of the year winner 2014 Joel Bird exhibits art made in his shed

If you are up in Liverpool this weekend pop along to visit 2014 Shed of the year Winner Joel Bird’s Art which is on display at the Reader Gallery (no relation to Reader Sheds) in Calderstones Park is filled with sculptures, paintings and inks. The subjects include figurative paintings, crows and allotments?!

Joel is a Liverpool born artist, now working out of his studio in London. His work reflects his belief that art is the indestructible link between working creative humans and nature.

The heart of his work lies perhaps in painting and sculpture, but as a keen photographer, a working carpenter and a life long musician, his art takes on the inevitable influences of a wide skill set.

He says “The signature of my work might be described a flowing structure which expresses inter-connection. And colourful and a love of nature.”
