DIGBETH “A STATE OF MIND”
Art in all its forms sets aside this district of Birmingham where music, fashion and sculpture rub shoulders with street art and graffiti every day.
Eclecticism is the keyword, with something to excite every taste. Digbeth is truly multicultural and is not nicknamed “the Camden B-Town” for nothing. Everyone you encounter seems stylish, in their own unique way, and it is not uncommon to see artists walking about, spray can in hand creating their latest masterpiece.
In short, Digbeth is a place that anyone interested in art of any kind needs to visit. But if you are interested in urban art, street art and graffiti this is a district you should absolutely not miss.

Red brick walls of Digbeth. The once industrial quarter of the city centre has now been transformed into the artistic district with the recent explosion of artists using its red brick walls as their canvas.
