Upfest 2013

The late May Bank Holiday once again heralded the arrival of 300+ street artists from across the world to a 2 mile stretch of road in Bedminster, Bristol for 3 days of live painting and drawing.

Mercifully the weather was kinder to us than it was last year as we shut our gallery on the Saturday to wander down and take a look. It was good to meet up with many of our artist friends whose work we have had the honour to hang in our gallery over the past 18 months – Everly Dark, Keith, Parlee, the Cretin Collective, SPQR to name but a few.

Our congratulations once more to the organisers and volunteers who made it another successful event, and our thanks to the local community for their hospitality.

There is a short film of Upfest 2013 made by Bristol photographer Simon Doling on Vimeo here.
