More than 300 street artists have helped to decorate Bristol for UpFest 2016, Europe's largest, free street art and graffiti festival. Artists from more than 25 countries have created murals covering 30,000sq ft of the city, home of renowned street artist Banksy. At the festival's heart is a 1.3km stretch of North Street, running through the suburbs of Bedminster and Southville. Some of the artworks are painted on movable boards and temporary hoardings, but murals on some venues and buildings will remain all year until the next festival.
