UPFEST as always is a massive thing in my yearly calendar. Upfest 2016, Europe’s largest, free, street art & graffiti festival, attracting over 300 artists painting 28 venues throughout Bedminster & Southville, Bristol from 23rd – 25th July. Talented artists travel from 25 countries and across the UK to paint live on 30,000sqft of surfaces in front of 25,000 visitors. The affordable art sale, music stages and art workshops round off a visually spectacular weekend! Its the first year since my very first Upfest I haven't painted with Leeks. In many ways a sad thing to not be painting with him but a challenge I had to take on due to the project I had taken on working with Bristol's Big Issue. This year if you follow me on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/fetcharts/) or facebook (https://www.facebook.com/fetch.arts) you would probably be bored of all the Big Issue artwork updates. For this I cant apologise as its a business and charity that I do feel really strongly about and admire what they stand for. Anyway, if any of you did get to make and have an photos let me know via facebook, twitter or instagram as I would really appreciate it. Thanks to Upfest, The ladies in the Big Issue Office Bristol, The Big Issue Vendors and my girl who some how puts up with all my cutting. http://www.upfest.co.uk/artist/fetch https://www.bigissue.org.uk
