Red Stripe and Filthy Luker Space Invade Manchester
Red Stripe have set their sights on special mission this Spring, to bring excitement and creativity to the people of the UK! The Jamaican lager beer brand has teamed up with a number of artists throughout the cities in hope of encouraging passers-by to interact with art, and Manchester is no exception.
street artist, Filthy Luker, has taken hold over Manchester Town
Hall, transforming the landmark into the retro 80s arcade game, Space
Invaders. The larger than life scene masks the building's scaffolding
with plastic road barrier and road work equipment, which is then illuminated by LED lights, to create the spectacle's animation. The project is the largest artwork ever to appear in Manchester and will be on display for the city's intrigue for one month from the 29th March.
Filthy Luker, who is responsible for creating many other rural and urban installations, tries to interact with people's surroundings and turn the heads of whoever he can. 'Make with a Red Stripe' has been the perfect opportunity for Luker to use every day objects for transforming the mundane, which is exactly what Red Stripe's creative campaign aims to prompt.
Other Red Stripe art projects are taking place over the UK this Spring, including displays in London, Bristol, Leeds and Edinburgh, so there's no excuse not to get involved!
