Upfest 2012

Upfest is Europes largest urban art festival, this year it had an impressive 250+ artists descend onto Southville, Bristol consuming over two miles of the city to paint live for three days and create over 20,000 square foot of artwork. The festival helps raise funds and more importantly awareness for the Bristol based charity NACOA, who work to address the problems children have growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism.

Looks like the beautiful British weather didn’t dampen the spirit…. Heres a visual roundup of just a few of the amazing pieces of work created over the weekend…
