Our summer festivals 

Summer means lots of festivals. Options vary from music to food.

During this summer, I at least went to three of them.

First was the Bristol Harbour Festival. 390 more words

Some Reading

17. North Street, hoarding (1)

I have not come across Dice 67 before. He is an artist from Cheltenham who likes to use a mix of stencils and freehand.

This political anti-austerity piece is slightly hidden away from view, and I am not sure if it is typical of Dice 67’s work. 27 more words


Upfest: Bristol

I’m a little late on the upload for this one, but here’s my photo diary from my day at Upfest, Bristol. Upfest is one of Europe’s largest street art and graffiti festivals. 106 more words


Upfest: The Spirit of Tokyo

One of my all-time favourite street artists is Dan Kitchener (DANK), and I am absolutely in love with the Japan-inspired work he does. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I heard he would be painting an epic wall really close to where I live in Bristol. 105 more words


12. North Street, heating and plumbing

This self-portrait? by Brave One AKA Scotty-B is another Upfest 2015 artwork (I think).

I have not seen any of his work before, but I guess this is the joy of Upfest, which brings so many artists to one place, and allows us to enjoy their work, often for the first time. 50 more words

Despite wandering around Upfest for seven hours on the first day, I returned (for several more hours) on the viewing day – Monday – to catch up with all the finished work. 54 more words
