‘See No Evil’ Bristol Street Art Event 2012

Loving a good piece of design (typically on a humble t-shirt) and always looking for any excuse to get out and about in the sun, last weekend saw this TruffleShuffler exploring the Bristol’s latest See No Evil street art event on Nelson street and what a treat it was!

Bringing together some of the most loved and well respected artists from around the globe, this annual event gives them the chance to really do their thing and bring the once bog standard street to life with some stunning pieces.

A total of 40 urban artists, including Mr Jago, Flying Fortress, Nychos and Mark Bode, have used 3,500 spray cans to create their masterpieces on the streets. The event is said to be largest street project in the UK and last year projectors were brought in to help artists create graffiti on buildings up to a neck craning 10 storeys high!

The four day long event featured a New York style bloc party with music and dancers as well as many live performances through the days which really had the city buzzing with life.

Take a look at some of the snaps we took of the event…

This one has to be our absolute fave! Such a fantastic design featuring the Marvel characters Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Superman, Iron Man and of course Batman! Can you spot them??

These two are just amazing, covering the entire side of the buildings, they stand proud for all to see and really have presence in the street and transform the area. Love it!

Well that’s a wrap folks! If you get the chance, you have to have a quick walk down Nelson Street, Bristol and see these for yourselves. They will be there all year so plenty of time to enjoy them.
