This Birmingham Alabama Skyline art print is part of a series I did featuring silhouettes of Birmingham landmarks and skyscrapers. Where my other Birmingham Alabama skyline art prints are very colorful, I wanted to create one silhouette that was a bit more neutral but nonetheless dramatic! There’s something about monotone images that really delivers a punch! So this variation on the them shows Brimingham in black and white in a chalkboard style.
The silhouette in this Birmingham Alabama skyline art print isn’t a literal interpretation of the skyline. Rather it’s a symbolic interpretation – an attempt at capturing the spirit and history of the city. Featured among the landmarks is the Sloss Furnaces which were a major part of Birmingham, Alabama’s history as an industrial American city. Also a monument to that industrial past is the Vulcan statue. And a symbol of the city and the state is the sign from the front of the Alabama theatre. The rest of the Birmingham skyline silhouette includes a collection of skyscrapers both historic and modern. As a group, this print captures the story of Birmingham, Alabama in an artful way.
In the time since I did this, it’s been my pleasure that this Birmingham Alabama skyline art print has turned out to be a popular one. I’ve heard from a few Birmingham natives who purchased prints as a reminder of home. I suspect some others may have gone to people who were looking for gifts for friends or family who had moved away but wanted to take a little of Birmingham with them.
