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

    NOT JUST HOCKNEY

    AN EXCITING NEW 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 monthly 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.

    Danny Abrahams is a self-taught Bradford-born artist.

    Catherine Bartle retired from the NHS in 2005 to paint professionally and successfully under the name ‘Wilsden Watercolours’. Although painting in watercolour for most of her life, retirement gave Catherine the time and opportunity to try other art mediums, including acrylics.  Her work has been exhibited and sold across the Yorkshire region in galleries, art shops, and online through her website. Contact: wilsdenwatercolours.com

    Laura Dawes is a freelance artist, based in Ilkley.  Her specialism is 3D video game art, but in recent years  Laura has increased her range, using digital painting, ink drawings, gouache, and watercolour, and to develop her interest in pet portraits and landscape art. She has exhibited original  paintings, prints, cards and other artwork with Ilkley Arts and other related events around the district. Contact: randomstuff.org.uk/~laura

    Steven Short worked locally in the social housing field for over 30 years before going freelance as a self-taught painter. His impressionist artwork has been exhibited locally and he has sold his paintings in the UK and internationally. Two of his works were selected for the Shipley-based Cellar Trust for their Christmas cards. Contact: steveshort.co.uk

    David Starley studied art at Sydney University whilst working in a steel foundry.  After a career in archaeology, he is now a professional painter. He works in oils, applied thickly to produce a three-dimensional effect, and his paintings often depict the landscape of Yorkshire. David’s work has been exhibited at galleries around Britain and he is also now the owner of The Bingley Gallery, Park Road, Bingley. Contact: davidstarleyartist.com

    Kerry J Stoker is a professional painter working and experimenting with a variety of media and style, including collage, and using acrylic, pure pigment, watercolour, oils and collage. Her work has been widely exhibited across Britain, including in London, Liverpool, Bristol, and Sheffield, as well as locally.  Her work has also been selected for the ‘Maze of Colour Exhibition at London’s Oxo Tower Wharfe this Spring.

    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. Five different artists will feature  bi-monthly.  For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
