Graffiti Artists Adorn Dilapidated Buildings in Bristol, England, as Part of the See No Evil Project

See No Evil Graffiti Project in Bristol, England

Touted as the largest street art project in the United Kingdom, See No Evil on Nelson Street in Bristol, England, will transform buildings into a riot of color and artwork over the next few days. Several multistory buildings on the street will be covered with art. The project's organizers hope that it will become a major tourist attraction for the city, which is said to be the spiritual home of graffiti artist Banksy.

In all, over 10 dilapidated buildings will be painted and stenciled by graffiti crews from the US, France, the Netherlands, Brazil, and Spain, as well as artists from Bristol itself. Project organizer and graffiti legend Inkie noted in an interview that he chose Nelson Street for a very specific reason. "'If you walked down it before we started, it was the worst concrete '60s urban nightmare," he said. "Decaying and decrepit. Even in a couple of days it’s completely transformed, and people are walking down there that would never have before."
