‘Back again!’ features over 270 collaborative artworks created by @background_bob with leading international street and graffiti artists including Mr Doodle, Shepard Fairey and Wrdsmith, other big names such as Grayson Perry, Ed Sheeran and Phill Jupitus and a range of artists and contributors from around the world.

Vibrant fantastical landscapes, intricate studies of animals and wildlife, portraits of legendary musicians including Dave Grohl and David Bowie, and Queen Elizabeth feature in the artworks alongside abstract pieces and portraits of the young artist himself. Each artwork features a vibrant background painted by @background_bob.

Alongside @background_bob’s trademark cardboard artworks, there are also sculptures, including a small robot-like figure created from household objects by Rust Bucket Workshop and aluminium can artworks created by Me Lata.

 ‘Back again!’ is the final exhibition of a project created by the Colchester-based artist Noah AKA @background_bob and his step-dad Nathan.
