Papergirl Newcastle is HERE!

Hurrah! This amazing do-and-share project kicks off tonight!

Founded in Berlin by Aisha Ronnigan in 2006, the Newcastle faction is co-ordinated by the incredibly talented Carlos Rosati of The Cloud Commission. How it works is that artists and illustrators send Papergirl some 2D artwork. A piece from each artist/illustrator is included in an exhibition, giving us all something lovely to look at and raise awareness of the project. A couple of weeks later, the exhibition is taken down, a few pieces in varying styles are rolled up into a tube then distributed by bicycle-riding Papergirl people to the public for free.
There’s some incredible local talent taking part, whoever gets some free art action is very lucky! Have a sneaky-peeky on the PG Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/papergirlnewcastle?sk=info


Created by Aisha Ronniger in 2006 in Berlin, we finally bring the rolls to the streets of Newcastle

Papergirl is a no bones, lets do and share, give away art on bikes operation. The plan is for yous lot to send in work to a designated address... and we give it out on a fixed date. This of course will be paired up with exhibitions of the work sent in, parties, cyclists breaskfasts and all sorts of silliness.

There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies etc. come together. Each roll contains several different works, meaning that each one will be a right mixed bag.In the style of American paper-boys, Papergirl distributes rolled art pieces by bicycle to passers-by.
