Well, I promised you I was going to go see it, didn’t I?
Saturday morning we made a rare foray into the city centre to check out the street art on Nelson Street, which was created as part of the See No Evil project.
Accompanied by Storm (3 – short attention span) and Al (bad back), I didn’t have much time to take pictures, but that’s OK, because, unlike much of the city’s street art, I know I can come back any time and it’ll still be there. Hurrah!
There is absolutely heaps more than these few pictures show, and I can’t wait to make a second trip to find all the bits I didn’t spot the first time. I definitely didn’t spend enough time looking up!
It was fantastic to see a street which folks normally rush through, full of people wandering around, taking pictures, discussing the various works of art, and generally marvelling at it all.
My favourite – Bristol all over it!
Xenz – mind blowing
Inkie – the mad genius behind it all…
Mysterious Al – who got stuck on top of a broken down cherry picker for an HOUR while painting this. It’s three storeys high…
A sense of scale…
Men at work. I loved how different this was.
Eat your greens!
Something tells me, this won’t be the last of it either…
Here’s another perspective on it:

I also stumbled across this comprehensive filmic look at Bristol’s amazing street art, which is well worth 5 minutes of your day, if you like that sort of thing.
