Bradford Big Screen

A creative space to share your film, photography and creativity

Our Vision

Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford City Council have teamed up to provide a new programme of events and content for the Bradford Big Screen. As well as providing national and local news, sport, arts, culture, entertainment and events, we want the screen to belong to the people of the city. If you have a film, photographs or other content to share with us then please get in touch. With 500,000 people on average passing by the screen each month it's a great opportunity. We're looking for content that enlightens, inspires, entertains, brings a smile to our faces — and make us proud to be from Bradford.

    Not Just Hockney art exhibition

    12:30 pmBradford's Big Screen

    NOT JUST HOCKNEY

    AN EXCITING EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230

    Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.

    November and December's exhibition - Artist's Choice

    Artists

    Aicha Bahij: Visual Artist
    I am a visual artist born and raised in Bradford.  I work mainly in ink, where uneven lines meet more detailed and complex images, so mirroring the ups and downs of life, both the quiet and the noise.  My art is very much centred on the human condition and how we make ourselves heard: the spirituality, the struggles, sometimes strength, sometimes weakness. And sometimes bliss, sometimes loneliness. Contact: okayaicha.co.uk

    Joy Godfrey: Painter, Printmaker & Sculptor
    I am a Dales artist living and working in Wharfedale.  My work includes oil and watercolour paintings together with a range of limited edition screenprints of scenes from Ilkley right up to Swaledale.  My love of screenprinting began at Bradford College of Art - the oil based inks, in use then, produced dense and beautiful colours.

    Jochen Gren: Textile Artist/Painter
    I work in embroidery and painting.  The embroideries are built on a spine of spirals like a back bone, and from there I build shapes and images to create a finished piece.  Due to nerve damage after an accident, I don’t use brushes but instead paint with my fingers. Layers of paint are built up until there is an image I am happy with. Contact: search Facebook, Beck Art Group

    Jade Marczynski:  Textile/Embroidery Artist
    I am a Bradford artist, specialising in hand embroidery. I mostly create pieces based on architecture, illustrating the businesses and buildings  in and around the Bradford district. I have always loved being creative and have a degree in Textile Crafts from the University of Huddersfield. Contact: jademarczynski.co.uk

    Anji Timlin: Painter
    My paintings are inspired by dramatic landscapes, ever-changing light and weather, and by the unexpected beauty in traces of the human footprint that are all around us in Bradford.  These traces form and shape our environment: from the ancient cup and ring stones high on the moors, to Victorian industrial ruins, anarchic and weedy; to the ghosts of roads, mills and quarries that connect us to our past. Contact: anjitimlin.com

    Jenny Tribillon: Window & Mural Artist
    I am a French-born window and mural artist based now in Bradford – I’m also known as ‘Froglet Art’ !  I have been painting seasonal scenes on the windows of shop fronts and homes for the past 15 years. Last year I was filmed painting a shop window in Skipton for the BBC ‘Countryfile.’ Contact: jennytribillon.com

    Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”

    Not Just Hockney will run every day at 1230 on Bradford Big Screen. Six different artists will feature  bi-monthly.  For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
