Description of the container:
Among other things, Hradec Králové is the birthplace of Vladimír Jiránek, so Bob and Bobek are featured carrying a full hat of e-waste on the container, but the opening is too high for them, so Pat & Mat rush to help, who are engulfed in their typical confusion and disturb the “votrocky” football mascot from a game of cat and mouse. All this is compositionally complemented by Hradec “lollipops”. The very first painted container was placed in Hradec Králové, which together with Pardubice piloted the “Art of Waste Sorting with Khoma” project. The original installation of the Hradec Králové container simply focused on separating e-waste, so there was no city-specific aspects; as a result, Hradec earned a second container (and not just for its courage).
Address where the container is located:

“I got to work on the project through my friend Khoma, with whom I enjoy working, so there was no hesitation! For me, the bonus is that through the five designs I provided taught me something new about the regions and their regional cities. Moreover, I’d say sorting waste is a kind of national sport for us, and why not make it at least a few containers nicer, right! ;)”
