Having just had the good fortune to spend the weekend in Bristol attending Upfest 2017 and being presented with an absolute abundance of new Street Art being created all around Bedminster of which we will of course be posting on the event soon but due to the time that will take to process, in the mean time we thought we would take a look at the excellent array of Street Art we got to see around Bristol beyond. So here we are going to share some pieces we found on a quick jaunt around Stokes Croft, Nelson Street and a series of works we found around Bedminster, mostly placed up for previous Upfest events and of which are still standing.
A treat to find Pad at work in the Bearpit on what was set to be a fantastic piece.
Great work by Pad with a subject and colour scheme that really fits its environment.
