Tracey Thorne

My work focuses on documenting and sharing stories that explore the ephemeral founded in the streets and urban landscapes. I have a particular interest in photographing graffiti, sign-painting and street art.

My current work is an evolving project documenting the visual landscape in Jamaica through graffiti, signs and street art called 'Hand-painted Jamaica'. I am focusing my work at STEAMhouse on experimenting with using different printing processes to with a plan to exhibit this work in 2020. The other project that I am working on is closer to home and involves developing a set of silkscreen prints of Birmingham Ghost Signs for an exhibition during Birmingham Heritage week in September.

I also run Ghost Streets CIC a community arts-based project in Birmingham.
