See No Evil: Street Art Transforming Bristol | Société Perrier

See No Evil: Street Art Transforming Bristol | Société Perrier | Globalization, Art, and Education | Scoop.it

What do you do when your city’s streets are looking dull and lifeless after years of wear and tear? Well, if you’re in the UK city of Bristol, you arrange for 20 of the most highly respected street artists from around the globe to come into the city and cover its buildings with huge graffiti murals, creating one of the largest permanent street art projects in Europe.

Up to ten multi-story buildings on Nelson Street, Bristol, will be covered in professional graffiti and other forms of street art over six days in August, as part of the See No Evil project, which aims to transform a run-down city street into a thoroughly contemporary tourist art attraction.

Some of the buildings to be painted on the street are up to 11 storeys high, ensuring that the already eye-catching work of the acclaimed artists strikes home as boldly as possible.

Bristol City Council are supporting the project by donating £40,000, with another £40,000 apparently having been donated by other sources.

The festival will open with a disused building on Nelson Street, the Westgate, hosting a range of music and cultural activities, including club nights arranged by local promoters, cocktail bars, and a pop-up barber experiential shop. Additionally, a street art “block party” will take place on the last day of the festival,

International artists contributing their skills to the event include: Tats cru from New York, El Mac from Los Angeles, Revert from France, Otto Schnade from Chile and Smug from Australia. A host of UK artists will also be present, including: Nick Walker, Kid Acne and Inkie.....
