Eight Foot Beautys.. /. / .

Regulars to my blog would have noted that last Upfest i also painted at the notorious Rock & Bowl hostel, Every Upfest they open up their doors and invite artists from around the world to leave their mark at the hostel. Last year i was honored to be offered a space of my own and leapt on the opportunity https://jakobbelbin.wordpress.com/2012/06/06/rock-n-bowl/ Though this year i was not staying at the hostel, their winsome manager “Matty B” extended the same offer to me once more. This time round i was a year older and had a partner in crime so i went for something completely different and chose a completely different space under the recommendation of Matty B. Its the only dark wall in the hostel and is the entrance to the smoking area. . / ./. These devastating beauty’s are 8 feet tall and were painted in about 2-3hours . /.// // …./ .

Well it has been a seriously intense weekend up in Bristol for UPFEST 2012… . I’m not entirely sure i’ve fully processed it yet but i do know it has been incredible. Over the course of the weekend i managed to get two huge pieces finished as well as finding time to take in the festivities, explore/get lost in Bristol and meet some pretty amazing people. .. . ….. . /. The pictures below are of the stages and finished piece at the Upfest festival and tomorrow when ive actually had time to sleep and process i will post pictures of the piece that i did and the very grand and painfully friendly Rock & Bowl Hostal…  … . . ///. / . . cheers guys its been surreal . . ././ .
