Peterborough’s Green Festival

More Rhino art – taking on climate change! Jay won a commission from Peterborough Environment City Trust to create artwork for Peterborough’s Green Festival. He has produced a series of audacious ‘adverts’ that are a satirical take on public advertising. The subversive ads relinquish blame from the individual as the main cause of climate change, challenging irresponsible corporations and rampant consumerism as the main cause. Read more about the project here: http://goo.gl/RFZARj

Jay’s artwork will be displayed in hoardings in 8 different sites in the city centre for the next 2 weeks. Let us know if you spot any by using the hashtag #PECTGreenFest

The Nest

Summer of art continued! This time Jason and Dom’s turn…

We were commissioned to create a new mural for the Allia Future Business Centre to brighten up a new office space called “The Nest”. The Nest will be used by new entrepreneurs and start-ups. We’re super happy with the result! You can see us transforming the room in our Benny Hill style video below:

Home

It’s the summer of art for Paper Rhino this year. We’ve had loads of art projects in the pipeline and we’re very much looking forward to sharing them all with you. Here’s the first: ‘Home’ by Amanda and Jay.
Amanda and Jay won a bid from Platforma South East to produce two pieces of work based on refugees. The project is called ‘Welcome’ and will be exhibited at the Turner Contemporary in Margate starting today and lasting until 11th July.

The work subverts the common arguments against accepting refugees. Images of refugees in plight are overlaid with a phrase of acceptance by Jo Cox MP. This is juxtaposed against a touching scene of a refugee baby being welcomed and cared for, overlaid with a blunt, rude and ignorant comment by a Britain First supporter.
