Thanks to the efforts of British street artist Inkie, and music promoters Team Love, Bristol will be home to a very ambitious permanent street art project, See No Evil. Graffiti and street artists from around the world have already started gathering and painting in Bristol, with the ultimate goal of completing facades on ten different multistory buildings on Nelson Street. Reppin’ the U.S. at See No Evil will be New York’s Tats Cru, and L.A. artist El Mac who is set to start painting today. These street art legends are joined by artists from Holland, Spain, Brazil and the UK, each bringing their completely unique styles to Bristol.
Event organizer Inkie explains:
“We have spent nearly 12 months negotiating and planning this major project, which will be the jewel in the crown of the city’s already buzzing art scene. We have invited some of the world’s most talented graffiti artists to bring their skills to city, and we have a number of returning Bristolians to head up proceedings.
Nothing of this size and scale has ever taken place in the UK and it’s an event that has captured the minds of some the world’s most respected street artists. It’s a major coup that we’ve managed to pull this off in Bristol.”
The celebration of these works, and the start of the exhibition is sure to be nothing short of exciting, so stay tuned for more info on the event which kicks off this Thursday!
