See No Evil Project — Bristol

Bristol is the setting for one of the most ambitious urban art projects in the world. Between August 18th-20th, some of the world’s leading street artists will be taking over Nelson Street in the heart of the city, as part of the new international arts event, See No Evil.

Bristol has long been the centre for urban art in the UK and now hosts a project that will create some of the world’s largest scale paintings. Over twenty internationally renowned artists will take up residency in Bristol city centre as part of a free, three day long arts and music event.

Artists already announced include New York based muralists, Tats Cru whose aerosol based work is dubbed to have ‘changed the perception of graffiti as art’ and LA artist El Mac whose work is prolific across every continent. As well as the US contingent, artists from France, Holland, Spain and Brazil will also bring their own unique styles to Bristol. Bristol born Inkie, one of the most notorious and prolific graffiti artists to emerge out of the 80’s Bristol scene will be joined by a raft of UK artists including Zeus and Nick Walker.

See No Evil will culminate on Saturday 20th August in a Block Party curated by local crew Team Love, celebrating the best of Bristol’s art and music culture with live street painting, bands and DJ’s, cartoon drawing, screen printing, a pop up barber shop and fancy dress emporium, street theatre and street dressing with a mini garden area stretching along the length of Nelson Street.

The Westgate, a disused building designed by architect Giles Gilbert Scott who also designed the Battersea Power Station and the iconic British red telephone box will be opening its doors for three nights of the best of Bristol music and art.
