Bristol snow graffiti

Bristol snow graffiti by Haka

Artwork is by Haka

This time of year usually means a low profile on the street art front, but a trio of Bristol artists have found an innovative way of making the most of the wintery conditions. By compacting snow, similar to how you would build a snowman, they have sculpted their own personal shapes, and onto which they have spray painted their designs.

The pieces can be found in Totterdown, but they won’t be around for long, as you can imagine.

Burning Candy opening night at the Emporium

Rowdy's inflatable croc

Last night (not coincidentally Guy Fawkes night) saw the opening of Burning Candy’s show at apparently their favourite gallery in Bristol, the Emporium. This is no doubt because they have free rein over the whole building, including the roof, which is the perfect place to set off fireworks, hang an inflatable crocodile and drink a few Red Stripe.
