Street Art in Bristol

Remember how I said Bristol was a perfect mix of traditional and modern? Well I meant it! Supposedly Banksy is from Bristol (ew), which means the tradition and love for street art is strong here, and really, what more could a girl ask for? Except for asking that people get the fuck over Banksy, like who cares, there are better artists in the world.

My favorite mural

Near the bus station there is a huge under-crossing called the Bear Pit. It’s the central spot for political street art and also hipster coffee stands and a Mexican restaurant in an old double-decker bus. (My carnitas quesadilla was pretty good.) Some of my favorite works:

Of course some asshole is arguing pro-racism!

This is really just a small sample. There was so much street art, and it was pretty much everywhere. My hands were cold so I didn’t always want to pull my phone and take a picture. But every underpass, bridge, unmonitored stretch of wall has been turned into a canvas.
