On the 12th June a graffiti artist was detained by police in St Werburghs for painting in the Mina Road Tunnel.

Last month we shared some of our observations of the changed visual culture of the city in these new lockdown times.

Capturing the urban landscape, the group then worked together to create a mural through stencil graffiti art and mixed media. Come see Bristol through young eyes, gaining a new perspective of the city we love.
