See the incredible work from Europe’s largest street art festival, UpFest in Bristol
A collection of striking images has been shared from this year’s UpFest, the largest street art festival in Europe, that highlight the talent of the creatives that were in attendance.
Held from 29 to 31 July in Bristol, the home of famed guerrilla artist Banksy, the popular event saw more than 350 artists from over 3o countries around the world taking part, with live wall painting taking place in 37 locations around the areas of Bedminster and Southville.
Pieces at the annual event included a gigantic portrait of John Lennon by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, a mural on the side of a pub by Will Barras and Xenz, as well as an impressive and intricate, hand-painted street-level piece by Caro Pepe.
Some of the work was painted on movable board and temporary hoardings, while other murals on selected venues and buildings will remain in place all year until the next festival. The event also included musical performances, with money being raised over the weekend for the National Association for Children of Alcoholics charity.
