  • Wish You Weren't Here?

    We're going to bring a bit of the seaside to the city this summer with our residency of Elements Gallery London. We're calling it 'Wish You Weren't Here?'. Want to see what we're up to? Click below...

  • Can you help?

    Do you know anyone who lived in Hackney in the 1940s-60s? We're gathering memories of trips to the seaside from East Enders for our Wish You Weren't Here? exhibition we're working on. If you know someone who could help, please let us know or tell them about our survey.


    Quiet British Accent is an artist duo. We began working together in 2011 and use a variety of signwriting and sewing techniques to explore our love of words, letters and language.


    We also paint fake expansions of our QbA acronym on old pennies and leave them on the streets for people to find (follow us below, or search for #pennydrops for clues). These little calling cards aren't for sale, you have to find one.


    Over the past six years, we've exhibited regularly, been featured by the likes of The Guardian, Design Week & Cool Hunting, taken part in the annual Art Car Boot Fair, worked on various commissions and workshops, and dropped a lot of pennies.


    Drop us a line if you have a question.
