POSCA ADDS A SPLASH OF COLOUR TO STREET FESTIVAL
uni POSCA has celebrated the diversity of European culture thanks to its sponsorship of a flagship street festival.
Held over the May bank holiday weekend in Manchester, Eurocultured featured work from over 1,000 European artists to showcase the very best in live art as well as dance, performance and music from across the continent.
As part of the sponsorship, POSCA marker pens were used to brighten up retail units and cobbled streets by completely transforming windows, brick walls and metal shutters.
Talented POSCA artists such as Matt Jones were on hand to demonstrate the qualities of the pen and pupils from St Ambrose Barlow High School in Swinton penned a selection of European sights on the windows of an empty shop unit at Piccadilly Place.
Stuart Barker, marketing manager at Mitsubishi Pencil Co., said: “We are pleased to have supported a project that widely recognises POSCA as an essential item for any artist. POSCA’s range of vibrant colours and line widths have created some visually stunning pieces of art that were exclusively revealed to audiences at Eurocultured. The work has revitalised this part of Manchester and we would urge everyone visiting the area to take a look for themselves.”
