QUIET BRITISH ACCENT

QbA is an offbeat art duo who use a signwriting and sewing aesthetic to explore their love of vernacular language and wordplay. The couple combine an irreverent attitude with a defiantly limited colour palette to produce striking artworks which have gathered the attention of The Guardian, Time Out & Cool Hunting, amongst others.

 

The duo’s #pennydrops have become a familiar sight on London’s streets. These pre-decimal pennies feature painted fake expansions of their QbA acronym and are left on the streets for people to find.
