Brunel’s Old Station will be at the centre of the upcoming See No Evil street art project, which is the largest event of its kind in the UK.
Last year See No Evil literally transformed Bristol with an exciting graffiti project on Nelson Street. The vast works of art that were daubed on the side of buildings have certainly brightened up what was a somewhat run-down area.
This year an area near to the Passenger Shed and Temple Meads will be getting the street art treatment, and our event venue itself is hosting Mail Maps and Motion on Friday, August 17.
Mail, Maps and Motion is being organised by The WaterShed and involves an exciting program of films, performance art and cutting edge music by world renowned performers.
The wider See No Evil project, which takes place between August 13 to 19, has been given £250,000 by the Olympics and Arts Council in funding. More than 25 international artists are being invited to showcase their skills including renowned names from Bristol and the UK.
Bristol Street artists China Mike, Nick Walker and Jody Thomas are among those who will be taking part and there will also be huge scale digital projections, music, after parties, a pop up gallery, live painting and 3D projections as part of the project.
See No Evil organisers said: “For the second year, the project will take disused Bristol city-centre spaces and animate them over the weekend. The week-long event is part of the London 2012 Festival, a summer-long arts festival throughout the country to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games.”
