Stokes Croft
Go see Bristol while its still open for business.

Bristol City Council came up with a great initiative to boost tourism to the city and brighten up one of the drabbest streets in Bristol by inviting artists to come and paint. After the contracts were signed by the artists ( with limits on free speech) they set to work decorating the beast that is Nelson St. Highlights were TATS crew and El Mac doing some pretty impressive stuff and Ghetto Faceurs/ Bonzai and Smugs offering which was probably one of the most impressive pieces painted on a street this year.
See No Evil will hopefully expand next year and no doubt be bigger if the economy doesn't totally collapse and we'll all be dressed like extra's on a Mad Max film scavenging for petrol and Pringles.
For real community art in Bristol go check out Chris Chalkley at the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft, 35 Jamaica St, Bristol. Tel: 0117 9444540.

The Bonzai
Such a perfect day

Todays paint session on the Stockwell Park Estate featured Bonzai, Ghetto Faceur from France and TATS Crew all the way from the boogie down Bronx. I always think with a name like that everyone must dance on the way to the supermarkets or something. Also comming out to paint with Jedi like skills after a massive 20 year ' paint break ' was Goldie.
The mural was a celebration of excellence and a dedication to the residents who came out to view it while it was happening. Well thats TATS crew and Goldie, when are we going to see a Chrome Angelz reunion?
