Street Art Transforms City

Graffiti artists from around the world were invited to transform the brutalist post-war architecture of Bristol, England's Nelson Street.

Tim Maughan writes that the public art experience, an event called See No Evil, transformed "...the whole area from drab, urban decay into what feels like a new – almost virtual – space." As opposed to other cities who fight graffiti tooth and nail, the Bristol City Council is supportive of the project.
