Print and Paste is a fantastic collaborative project which utilised a disused poster site in Manchester and invited artists and designers to use it as an exhibition space. The most recent addition at the site is North & South – a collaboration between Anthony Burrill, Liam Hopkins of ‘creative services studio’ Lost Heritage and Dave Sedgwick of Print and Paste.
“North & South is a reference to the way in which the project was produced (and also to Burrill who grew up in the north but now lives and works in the south). Burrill designed the letters which were then manufactured by Hopkins using his workshop’s CNC router. Each letter was printed on the Heidelberg Cylinder press at Adams of Rye in East Sussex, Burrill’s regular printing partner. The prints were then pasted on to the billboard to complete the final piece.” – Creative Review
