Just some of the incredible artwork on show as part of the Background Bob exhibition
Back in May we wrote an article about the Background Bob project. A simple heart warming father and son art project that soon involved 100s of artists from all over the world. In September the project became a beautiful book titled ‘Background Bob and his amazing friends’, featuring all of the incredible artwork. This month the project became the Background Bob exhibition at the Firstsite Gallery in Colchester.
On Wednesday we took a 2 hour trip down to the wonderful gallery to check out the exhibition for ourselves.
