Towards the end the response from the public was amazing, lots of photo's being taken, people stopping and staring and positive comments being made, although there were a few people who were vehemently against it but in the 3 days being there I only heard 3, a very small percentage.
I must say Vhils and the rest of his team were top blokes, a pleasure spending a little time in their company. They're off to Nuart Festival in Norway next http://www.nuart.no/ then work to do in Miami and Buenos Aires, we are indeed privileged to have work like this in Exeter.
Vhils (Alexandre Farto) the internationally renowned Portuguese street artist has been commissioned to do a piece on the side of what will become Urban Outfitters in Exeter, not sure if this is finished, he usually carves the work into the wall using a pneumatic drill, so this could just be the outline? http://alexandrefarto.com/
Excuse the photo quality, grey day and iPhone photo's...
On Sunday I went to Nelson Street in Bristol which has been transformed by street art and graffiti for the See No Evil project. The quality and scale was stunning. Featuring artists not only from Bristol but worldwide http://www.seenoevilbristol.co.uk/
