As we neatly sidestep the burning wheelie bins, there’s something else brewing in Bristol, besides political tension and light-fingered opportunists. Mid August sees the arrival of some of the finest international artists, coming together to paint at the biggest permanent street art project in the UK. Ever.
With a little help from his friends at Bristol City Council, Inkie has brought together over 30 artists to paint 10 multi-storey buildings on Nelson Street in the centre of Bristol, top to bottom! Painting from the 18th to the 20th August, the finished work will be available to view over the weekend and beyond.
The irony of Inkie being invited to paint the very courts he was sentenced in after Operation Anderson all those years ago is, perhaps, something we should gloss over as the council have made such a massive commitment to this project. Big ups to Bristol City Council’s Mike Bennett for shining a light on this one.
The brings together a multitude of talent, joining the artists, there will also be a strong roster of events to accompany the artwork. Including a pop-up ‘See No Evil’ shop, run by the Weapon Of Choice boys, and a string of club nights curated by Team Love, the events kick off on Thursday evening with a Resident Advisor screening and run throughout the weekend.
VNA will be catching some exclusive interviews with the likes of Aryz, El Mac, Inkie, Mr. Jago, Wow123, Smug and Nick Walker. Keep ‘em skinned for the latest from these superheroes when we drop some interviews on this here interweb.
