The Most Jaw-Dropping Street Art From Bristol's Upfest 2017

Stunning.
|

Bristol in southwest England was treated to a riotous explosion of color over the weekend.

Buildings, boards and store shutters across its Bedminster neighborhood were covered in eye-catching and thought-provoking murals, stencils and paintings as more than 350 street artists descended on the area for “Upfest,” Europe’s largest live street art event.

Renowned artists including Jody Thomas, Cheo, Buff Monster, Pahnl and Kobra were watched on by thousands of visitors as they braved rain showers to meticulously paint over last year’s works.

The festival is now almost a decade old, having evolved from its humble beginnings as just a small gathering of friends in 2008.
