Papergirl Cardiff prepares to hit the city’s streets

An exhibition of artwork which will be dished out to the Cardiff public by cyclists this weekend is coming to an end.

The Papergirl art exhibition opened its doors last Friday and as the cyclists ready themselves to take the art out to the streets, organisers are urging people to take a look.

Geraldine Nichols, one of the organisers, said: “We have had submissions from more than 50 artists – from Wales, all over the UK, and the US.

“Many people had taken part in Papergirl projects in other countries, and wanted to contribute to this growing worldwide phenomenon, happening for the first time in Wales this year.

“The spirit of donating artwork and distributing it free to the public by cyclists, is alive and well, and has struck a chord with many hearing about it for the first time.”

Papergirl will see the artwork, currently hosted at the Printhaus on Llandaff Road, Canton, given to unsuspecting members of the public in a guerilla art movement.

The exhibition also includes a display of bike parts – with wheels, handlebars and pedals in the venue.

Papergirl’s show runs until Friday 17th June, open from 11am-2pm and 4pm-7pm, daily.
