Coventry BID is, today, announcing a call out to city artists to register their interest in recreating a special piece of striking street art as part of the on-going In Paint We Trust project, which is running throughout the 2021 UK City of Culture celebrations.
The funded opportunity will see one chosen artist assist in the replication and installation of artwork by CovKid™ at a chosen location in the city centre as part of the In Paint We Trust program, which has already seen giant, stunning artworks appear across the city by leading contemporary street artists, including the cultural and political figure, Ira Aldridge on the Belgrade Theatre, by artist, Dreph.
Leading this campaign is Coventry BID. Director of Coventry BID, Trish Willetts comments; “This is an exciting opportunity for a local artist to become involved in this highly visual and successful campaign, delivered as part of the UK City of Culture year. The chosen artist will legitimately be able to say that they played their part in this historic street art campaign”.
Interested artists should display a strong technical ability, as they will be tasked with faithfully replicating the artwork especially created by CovKid™.
