I had a great time participating at the SEE NO EVIL street art/graffiti event in Bristol, UK. The event drew over 50,000 spectators and supporters! This mural festival is one of the largest in Europe. Here's a few shots. Our wall is on a corner of one of the main entrance into the area, opposite end Nelson & Christmas St. Click on image for larger view. Bristol reminded me of SF. Together with ManOne & Vyal Reyes.. Thank you Inkie, John, Keith, Paul, Mary, Matt, Jo, Amber, and other facilitators.

Peace mural by Werc + Gera + Contra + JC. ©2011. In conjunction with LA Vs. WAR, Iraq Veterans Against the War & Yo! Peace. Special thanks to Crewest Gallery, Estée Ochoa, Jesse Benicio, Christopher Wallace, Eyerie Z, & The Vortex crew. Statement from the artists: This wall is inspired by healing the archetype of war with the nurturance of love. The woman in the composition is Mother Earth. Her energy comes from the universe, and her healing power comes from source. She loves all her children, the light-workers and the dark-workers. She is holding one of her children, a metal, military man who is a representation of war. She loves him without judgment. In her arms of healing love, he passes along with the times of war and destruction, bringing in a new time of color and light.
