Papergirl Manchester

Papergirl is an art project from Berlin which involves handing out rolled up artworks from bicycles to random passers by on the street. The project is making its debut in the UK in Manchester this October.

Papergirl Manchester has an exhibition which will run from the 1st October - 21st October, this is a chance to see the work before it is distributed. 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.I submitted six original drawings for the project- all pencil with gouache and ink. I just wish I wish a bit closer to Manchester so I could have visited the exhibition- or made a point of hanging around the streets on the day of delivery!


  1. Sounds like fun, I wish I could hang around in Manchester for a while waiting for some art to be handed out :)

  2. Its a great idea- maybe it will pop up in other places in the UK- I'd like if they did one up here in Scotland x

  3. i love this idea! fingers crossed they do it up here at some point.

  4. What a fun idea! Hoping it'll make it to London too :)

  5. sounds like a brilliant idea - would love it to come to Southampton too!
