Urban Paint Festival Bristol

From the pictures it seems the first Urban Paint Festival in Bristol this past weekend was a success. Taking inspiration from the Cans Festival in London earlier this year the Bristol UPF was created to be a freestyle contemporary urban art-charity event. Each of the 40 artists were invited to bring along a canvas which was put up for auction in the Tobacco Factory in Bristol, where 50% of proceeds went directly to NACOA. I always admire those that start right off with doing a Charity event.

The event lasted12 hours, with live painting every second from international and national artists. Kids were invited out to paint along, and there was live music to entertain. So overall, it sounds like a down right nice art event.
