Bristol Pound Winner – Marta Zubieta
MA Graphic Arts student Marta has had her design selected to adorn the new Bristol Pound £5 note 2018 edition.
This is Marta’s description of her work:
“The theme of my submissions is mainly Art and Culture, and it is a combination of Bristol icons and emblems. It is called Bristol Creatures, and I have included in it emblematic icons, new and old ones, of our city. You can find an SS Great Britain with the LGBT flag, a confused Goram hunting balloons, or the Bristol Bear (Stokes Croft icon) skating with a ‘we love Bristol’ message in a flag.
The interesting thing about the 2 submissions are 2 halves of a same landscape, so If the notes get printed it could be like a game to find and join these 2 pieces of our amazing city.”
