72 street artists from across the globe recently descended upon Bristol to take part in the aptly named See No Evil block party.
The project had the complete support of Bristol city council and produced some of the world's largest scale works of art. The event brought together people of all ages from across the community and gave some of the people of the area a completely different outlook on what graffiti meant to them. I think the project is an amazing concept and would love to see other councils follow in Bristol's footsteps in bringing something quite special to run down areas of their city or town.
Buildings painted included the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Unite building, 9 and 11 Quay Street and the walkway over the street near Trafalgar House. The juvenile courts and one of the police buildings were also painted. Artists included New York based muralists Tats Cru, LA's El Mac, artists from France, Holland, Spain and Brazil also brought their own distinct art to Bristol.
Bristol born Inkie, one of the most notorious and prolific graffiti artists to emerge out of the 80’s Bristol scene was joined by a raft of UK artists including Zeus and Nick W. The event which took place over the course of a week culminated with the block party curated by local crew Team Love.
Big ups to See No Evil, here's hoping for more support from councils across the country.
