"Nobody likes being labeled, especially not artists. So use the term “street art” or “graffiti artist” with care (a new term being thrown around is “independent public art”), most artists will have some sort of qualm with the terms or not identify with them at all. Call it what you like, but it is undeniable that there are some true artists working on the street and they are becoming the art world’s rock stars."

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.
