Looney Tunes Unleashed in Manchester
The playful world of Looney Tunes has taken to the streets of Manchester, with a colourful, family friendly walking tour of the iconic characters popping up around the city.
11 beloved characters including Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tasmanian Devil, have been installed over 2 weeks by street artist Captain Kris, and will be on display until the end of July
The trail covers 12 different locations from the Northern Quarter to Spinningfields, Market Street to the Gay Village, Deansgate to Oxford Road, Printworks to Primark
The street artist Captain Kris, alongside street art collective Blank Walls, designed the artwork with the aim to make the trail as vibrant and interactive as possible. As he usually works with bright colours and bold lines, Captain Kris was able to bring these characters to life through imaginative design and poses. Captain Kris says “Like most people, I’ve loved Looney Tunes since I was a child. It’s been a lot of fun creating these cheeky, adventurous poses, with the Looney Tunes characters wreaking havoc across Manchester”
