Bristol is a city that all urban art lovers must visit absolutely. On the streets of the popular districts of the “seaside town”, graffitis and stencils are displayed on every available wall. Those of Banksy, of course, but also those of most major international street artists.

In Bristol, street art is “at home”, well almost, except in the historic centre, where four full-time policemen, flanked by a squad of municipal employees, jealously guard the grey walls. In the rest of the city, on the other hand, the colour resumes its rights. In popular and multi-ethnic neighborhoods of Croft Stocks and Saint Paul, graffiti artworks grow day after day to become finally an exciting and bustling form of folk art.

Some streets such as Moon Street, Fraklyn Street, Jamaica Street … have become genuine open-sky galleries over time. Stencils, murals, free hand spray cans paintings, dazibaos, transforming urban items, are jostling, or even overlapping literally on the walls. Often spectacular, covering whole sections of houses and buildings, Bristol street artworks strike by their diversity, their creativity and their originality.
