See No Evil Street Art Project

30 Sep 2012

See No Evil is the UK’s largest permanent street art project, set up in the city centre of Bristol.

See No Evil is the UK’s largest permanent street art project. It’s a huge outdoor gallery showcasing some of the world’s leading graffiti artists on the buildings and walls of Nelson Street, Bristol. See No Evil are now into their second year cementing it as a permanent feature for the city of Bristol, which has had a strong street art and graffiti scene since the 80′s.

Each year, Nelson Street which links the main shopping area of Broadmead to the harbour side is closed to traffic to allow crowds to fill the streets and enjoy the artwork. This year there were pieces from Pixel Pancho, Nychos, Flying Fortress, Mark Bode, Stik and M-City as well a whole load of artists from the strong local scene including Cheo, KTF Crew, FLX, Andy Council, Soker, TCF Crew, Sickboy, Nick Walker and Inkie.

The event is accompanied by various music events in some of Bristol’s best clubs and a pop up gallery which showcases some of the artists work on canvas.

The most interesting thing about the project is the collaboration between See No Evil and Bristol City Council. Without the council’s help the event would not be anywhere near the same scale, they are the ones that give permission for the entire sides of city centre buildings to be painted. I’m not sure how many other city councils in England, or the rest of the world would be so liberal and accommodating to the idea.
