‘Mr. Cool’ In London – A Successful Collaboration Between SKIP Gallery And Cool Shit Led

‘Mr. Cool’ In London

A few days back, i.e., on the 9th of June, the people of Hoxton Square marked the successful completion of an exceptional inaugural collaboration event. The collaboration was between SKIP Gallery and the artist collective Cool Shit. It was a magnificent public ‘moment’ where people saw the introduction of a new character to the Cool Shit roster. This character is none other than ‘Mr. Cool’ as you can see from the below-given image.

About Mr. Cool

Mr. Cool is a giant yellow man who is shown to take a dump in a skip. This colossal 5m high inflatable pop-up in a mammoth 12-yard skip. It is the most extensive SKIP Gallery that has been used to date. 

Another critical thing to note in this aspect is that Mr. Cool is based on the traditional figure of Caganer, a bare-arsed character featured in Catalonian nativity scenes.

Gaining Clear Insights On SKIP Gallery And Cool Shit

SKIP Gallery

SKIP Gallery intends to develop and grow as a democratic platform for all forms of art. Founded by artistic duo Baker & Borowski, SKIP Gallery is an ongoing collaborative artwork. 

Their main idea is to provide opportunities for creative interventions in unforeseen places by employing a specially modified skip. From the modular nature of the skip, you can get an idea that the projects are not restricted by the customary limitations of a typical creative platform.

Earlier Collaboration Of SKIP Gallery

SKIP Gallery has also collaborated with David Shrigley, Richard Woods, and Gavin Turk, courtesy of their incredibly modified skip art spaces.

Cool Shit

Cool Shit is a team of nonconformists focused on creating larger-than-life inflatable figurines, event props, etc. They started their journey by making the head of Lionel Richie. 

Now, they are successfully working on many notable projects. As a studio, they always strive to make their and their clients’ names by creating mind-boggling art pieces for them.

​Past Experience Of Cool Shit In Creating Such Inflatables

Cool Shit also has experience creating inflatables in the past. In the year 2013, they fundraised for the creation of a vast blow-up sculpture of the head of Lionel Ritchie. 

After that, this sculpture traveled to Bestival. It was followed by more of the same, including Tina Turner, ‘Happy Kanye’, Bad Bunny, Bobby Brown, and Damien Hirst.

More Information About This Collaboration Event

Mr. Cool has conducted his business for one evening only, i.e., on Thursday, the 9th of June, between 6.30 pm and 9 pm. The first 50 punters had again got a unique piece of Cool Shit art merch commemorating the occasion. Isn’t that amazing?

Finally, we at RMS Skip Hire would like to thank both SKIP Gallery and Cool Shit for making this event successful and memorable.
