  • ABOUT QbA

    We are Jason and Sharon, an art duo with a love of slogans, vernacular language and lettering. We create our own stories based around alternative expansions of our QbA acronym and a defiantly limited colour palette, producing work which has gathered the attention of Time Out, The Guardian & Cool Hunting, amongst others.

     

    Trained at Technical Colleges in Graphic Design and Fashion & Textiles, we met, married, had kids and finally got around to working together as QbA once our youngest started secondary school in 2011.

     

    Our #pennydrops have become a familiar sight on streets. These painted pre-decimal pennies are left as our calling card for people to find.

     

    We exhibit regularly and in the summer of 2017 held a three-month residency at Elements Gallery London. We have taken part in the annual Art Car Boot Fair for the past four years and have worked on various commissions and workshops.

     

    Please drop us a line if you have a question.

  • WISH YOU WEREN'T HERE?

    Elements Gallery, London. 2017

    Throughout Summer 2017 we held a residency at Elements Gallery London curated by Rebecca Feiner, bringing the seaside to the city. Drawing inspiration from our own personal backgrounds (one seaside, one city), as well as interviews with local East End residents, we celebrated the heyday of the British seaside and documented the whole process on a blog.
