BIG plans for Nelson Street in Bristol city centre have now been publicly revealed. 

Over 30 UK and international artists will be in town from the 14th to the 21st August busy transforming the dingy streets’ grey concrete buildings into something spectacular.  Some of these buildings are in access of 50ft tall so there are going to be some HUGELY impressive murals on show, in fact quite possibly some of the largest in the world.

Organisers, including Bristolian graffti artist Inkie aka Tom Bingle, hope that  – See No Evil – will be the biggest local  art event since Banksy took over the Museum of Bristol in 2009 giving the city a massive boost.

The road will be closed for the weekend of the 20th & 21st August for a street party, with local traders opening street stalls, music and pop up bars on the ground floors of some of the vacant properties.  There will also be workshops so people can learn more about the art form. 
Nelson Street has capacity for up to 5,000 people at any one time, but if there are more than that then the other access points at Christmas Street and Broad Street will be closed off.  Visitors would be let in at the Colston Avenue end of Nelson Street, and leave at Union Street.

The Birds are back for their summer exhibition.  If you have have been to a Great Birds show in the past  you’ll know what a treat there is in store, if not you need to go check out what you’ve been missing.

The birds have been working exceptionally hard over the last few months to bring you, fresh and exciting new work and we really do think that this will be the biggest and best show yet, so go show the birds some love.

The Island,

Bridewell St,

Bristol, BS1 2LE.

The exhibition will then run from 16th – 24th July

12-7pm daily


Great Birds of the British Isles are four female artists,

Milk, K148, Dora and Amour currently living and working in Bristol, England.

They bring site-specific beautification, to exhibition spaces and disused shops, the diamonds in the rough.

The collective formed in 2009.  Working closely together incorporating their visuals and individual styles,

whilst all concentrating on their own creations – their delusions of grandeur, in the feathered revolution.

The birds combine paintings, prints and photography, with their use of colour, form and essence, allowing the viewer to find each space unique.  

Spreading their wings, dropping their liquid styles onto the walls and floors. Decorating, and simplifying, all in one stroke.
