Jamaica Street Artists celebrate 20 years in Stokes Croft

About

A lot can happen in 20 years. Especially in Stokes Croft. This summer, all 36 Jamaica Street Artists - print makers, illustrators, film makers, sculptors and fine artists - welcome you into their studios to celebrate this special anniversary in the heart of Bristol's Cultural Quarter. Step into the Grade II listed former carriageworks for a view of life at the studios. Meet current artists, from photo realist painter Philip Munoz to Argentinian artist Romina Berenice Canet who makes circus inspired art dolls, and discover the impact Jamaica Street has had on artists and the community over two decades. Since the studios began in 1993, this colourful area has seen riots, redevelopment, rocketing house prices and Banksy, but its cutting edge character endures and continues to lure artists from around the world to this creative haven. There'll be artwork available to buy for all budgets, as well as a Mini Canvas Auction on Sunday evening (4-6pm) led by Bristol Mayor George Ferguson.
