Papergirl Manchester 2011

In October 2010 Papergirl made its UK debut in the streets of Manchester. Papergirl is an art project from Berlin which involves handing out small bundles of rolled up artwork from bicycles to passers by. There are no guidelines to the format of work submitted to the project so originals, prints, photos and photocopies all come together. A mix of work will go into each roll for delivery.

Last year I submitted six drawings to the project and this year I have four ready to be sent off. There will be an exhibition of work held before the artwork is distributed, this will take place in the Soup Kitchen, Manchester in May.


  1. These look great, I love the expression in the second one. Also love the effect of the yellow background, especially on the rose/pink tinges :)

    The Papergirl project is fab, I'd love to be handed a roll of artwork, would be so exciting opening it up to see what's inside!

  2. Thanks Gillian, I had good fun drawing them. I'd love to be handed a bundle of artwork from papergirl too, youre right- would be v exciting to see what was inside!
