Noiamreiss, an illustration graduate, believes that seemingly mundane activities provide creative inspiration (though he is also influenced by the symbolism of Egyptian hieroglyphics). His work has creatively expanded to the mediums of paint, ink, oil pastel and fine-liners. The female form, predominately the face, is an ongoing creative production. Noiamreiss’ door is striking; the colours of pink, black and white on one side, and orange, black and white for the other. Signifiers of Birmingham replicated upon the doors are most evident in the bull and the municipal bank, though, if you observe closely, other symbols can be identified.

Ildikó Nagy is a multidisciplinary artist whose work includes painting, drawing, sculpturing and craftwork (felt hats!). Nagy’s work is focused on the natural environment, the importance of expression through creative means, and art as a means of provoking an active response to ecological issues. Nagy uses her talent to curate workshops and projects and has established a creative business: Usefool. Using enamel paint, the two sides of her door represent a keyhole that is filled with bright colours that contrast with the minimalist background of black and white lines. Nagy encourages creative interpretations of all of her work - including the doors.
