Some of the leading names in pop culture, street art, illustration and style will be coming to Birmingham for a weekend of free events in November.

Eye Candy will bring world-class pop artists, illustrators, photographers and designers to Digbeth between November 13-15.

The free event celebrates the best of visual pop culture with one-off installations, street art, workshops, talks and performances.

Over the three days visitors will get the chance to produce their own work, screen prints and photography with a selection of workshops and talks.

London-based illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve, who works with clients including Top Shop, LVMH, Nike, Zac Posen and Vogue, will lead an event.

Paris-based artist Fafi is making a rare visit to Birmingham, where she will make a bespoke mural for Eye Candy. Her work has been used by big names such as Adidas and M.A.C. cosmetics, as well as music artists M.I.A, Lily Allen and Mark Ronson.

Miss Led returns to Eye Candy, having produced her first major mural on a car park wall at last year’s event. She is joined by Anna Garforth, who created a large-format wooden Geo-Fox for last year’s festival. Both artists will create new works.

A photography exhibition of street-style will give new insight into youth culture, presented in association with the photographic agency PYMCA.

Visitors can witness the live creation of a large-scale mural over two days with Brothers of the Stripe, an all-male collective of illustrators.

Eye Candy is funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England’s Grants for the arts programme. It is also supported by Birmingham City University’s Visual Communications department and Southside Business Improvement District.

The festival takes place at Boxxed, 104 Floodgate Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5SR on Thursday 13-Saturday November 15, 2014
