Bristol is the home of street art! In the UK.
This fine Sunday morning we had the opportunity for a leisurely wander around the city centre and came across these wonderful works of art. This is the Nelson Street area of Bristol, and, looking into it later that day, we realised it was the site of the UK’s largest street art project. The paintings are absolutely amazing! There was such a variety of style and content, all very individual and skilfully rendered. Astounding technical skill and imagination. We just walked around with our eyes skywards, pointing at buildings and taking photographs for an hour!
The gallery space itself has its own unique charm and character-stained grey concrete walls, discarded packaging to step over and indeterminate liquids lying in pools on the floor or dripping from walkways overhead. A bleak, anonymous and impersonal urban landscape illuminated by spray can and brush.
