Artel Gallery shared some pictures with us of the recent See No Evil Project that took place last weekend in Bristol UK. We have been watching the updates and all the walls look amazing. It looks like the event was a success. Bristol was blessed with the presence of some of the worlds top Graffiti/Street Artists. Here is a quote from Artel Gallery about the festival. “Over 70 artists transforming one of the dirtiest streets in Bristol into a thriving mass of pieces by some amazing writers and street artists. My earliest memories of Nelson Street were getting off of the bus as a child into a mass of in places amazing architecture but very 1970s. I also remember it being very dark and dirty from the bus and car fumes that seeps into the concrete over 40 years. Now that has all changed with this one event.” The world needs to take notice of events that are put together of this scale. This is another example of what is possible when a city embraces its artists, instead of waging war on them. Great Job to everyone involved. More pics Here.
