Danielle Rhoda’s City of Colour is a celebration of diversity in Manchester.
Just like she does in her daily practice, the artist will take to the streets to document real people and create illustrated snapshots of their moments in the city on the front of the HOME building. This time, focusing especially on the Black community for Black History Month 2022.
Danielle Rhoda is an illustrator, animator and maker of things originally from Poland and after studying at Manchester School of Art she is currently based between Manchester and Barcelona.
Her work wanders between observations of daily situations and storytelling both self-led and for commercial clients. She uses a variety of media with the focus on traditional materials with the aim of placing handmade textures at the forefront of her visuals which are often depictions of people in her local areas.
Some of her clients include the BBC, CNN and The New York Times.
