Graffiti Thrown From a Bicycle

Deadline for submissions is August 18.

An art project that originated in Berlin (where German graffiti laws equate putting up posters in public spaces with graffiti-spraying) is collecting flexible pieces of artwork that will be rolled into little newspaper-like bundles and hurled from bicycles at passersby.

From the website:

Anything Can Be Submitted: prints, photos, drawings, paintings, zines, writings, textiles, buttons, stickers, etc. We want anything you make!

There Are No Guidelines as to Medium, Subject Matter, or Quantity: originals, prints, photos, copies etc. are all acceptable forms of submissions, and we encourage you to send multiples of your work, so it can be put into many art rolls.

We use everything that is submitted, so the artists decide what to show and have given away in distribution. The art rolls cannot be sold and are not delivered to subscribers, anyone who catches a roll is lucky, and money can’t buy luck! Throwing the work from a moving bike means there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the art rolls, as distributors often have to react fast and spontaneously.

Art can be dropped off at the Mission Bicycle Company on Valencia, or mailed to:

Papergirl SF
P.O. Box 410156
San Francisco, CA 94141
