The official line up has been unveiled for See No Evil, 13-19th August 2012 with some of the biggest names in the global urban art scene involved in the most diverse and exciting project to take place in the UK.
The See No Evil art curation team, curated by Inkie has carefully selected 30 of the top street artists in the world to descend on Bristol’s Nelson Street and paint giant pieces of art onto multi-story buildings, leaving a stunning outdoor gallery for the people of Bristol and visitors to the city to enjoy.
New York based legendary Mark Bode, son of the inventor the original graffiti cartoon character, Cheech Wiz, he has work displayed in galleries across the globe and will be joined by the likes of M City, who creates stunning black and while post industrial stencils. Alphabet painter Eine, whose work was famously given as a present from David Cameron to President Obama on his first state visit has also confirmed he will be at the event, as will home grown talent Nick Walker.
Hear No Evil, a series of free music events across the week, organised by Team Love will see the city’s best DJ’s, promoters and undiscovered artists perform over three nights from 16th to 19th August 2012 in the historic Westgate building and at an incredible Block Party on Nelson Street itself on Saturday daytime.
The week-long event is part of the London 2012 Festival, a summer-long arts festival throughout the country to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Curated artists will paint Nelson Street, to reinvent a selection of urban spaces, with some jaw-dropping images expected to be added to the Bristol street. The programme has received significant investment from Arts Council England as part of the Cultural Olympiad and as part of the Arts Council’s commitment to placing culture and creative industries at the heart of regenerating the Temple Quarter.
See No Evil is organised with the support of the Arts Council, London 2012 Festival and Bristol City Council and Bristol University.
