Painting at Upfest 2013 in Bristol

Bristol's urban paint festival, Upfest, was fantastic this year. On the Friday night I joined a whole bunch of artists in painting the shop shutters on North Street, Southville. I painted the shutter on the side of Rare butchers. Knowing this piece was going to be displayed for at least a year I stuck with an image I have done before and saved my experimentalism for the main day.

The finished piece.... Many people asked if I cut the stencils myself. It's not a stencil.

On the Saturday I painted my finger legs image. I was working next to the mysterious Louis French; nice guy.

Amazing atmosphere. I recommend everyone get behind this fantastic festival.
