“If you’ve been to the city centre of Birmingham even once then you will have seen LiskBot, you may just not realise it. Look on any lampost and there will be a small robot intermingling amongst others. Swing round to Digbeth and see large scale versions of the bots, glimpsing around corners and covering derelict windows. Call them Lisk’s invisibile army.”
Lisk Bot is a Birmingham based graffiti artist and you can check out his exhibition with Golden Boy & Miss150 at 6/8 Kafe until 19th November.
The humble takeaway cup is often something taken for granted and discarded once a beverage is finished…well not at 6/8. We have invited a whole host of illustrators, graphic designers and photographers to put their unique skills onto stickers that will adorn our takeaway cups. As well as our customers getting a little piece of art with every drink, it will also be a way of these creatives getting their work to a new audience.
Some are exclusive prints designed for this project, whereas others have sketched or done typography that is different on every sticker - no two cups will be the same.
The majority of contributors are locally based, but submissions are coming from as far away as Glasgow.
So far we have been kindly donated work from:
This is an ongoing project and we welcome submissions from anyone who would like to be part of it.
