On Thursday 25th May, Kosmonaut will play host to Battlegroundz, an exhibition by Manchester illustrators Harrison Edwards and Daniel Gunn, with beats provided by KhanFu and FREE Gin & Juice from, art partner, Three Rivers Gin.

Battlegroundz will see illustrators Harrison Edwards and Daniel Gunn pit their favourite hip hop artists head to head in an artistic battle to the beats. Using a mixed style of illustration and other mediums, you can expect to see some of the genre’s iconic and contemporary figures presented in brand new ways.

Harrison Edwards is best known in Manchester for his work within the Manchester bar scene while Danny Gunn is new to Manchester’s art crowd but has a killer beard that, he says, helps him blend in seamlessly.

KhanFu will be on the ones and twos to supply a fitting soundtrack for the evening and, as always, Hip Hop Chip Shop will be cooking up something special in the kitchen…if that’s not a match made in heaven then nothing is.

As if that wasn’t enough; if you are dropping by, get your pens at the ready for a bit of hip hop bingo – there will be prizes kicking around for those that know.
