The second See No Evil street art project is underway in Bristol. It's one of the largest legal street graffiti projects in Europe. Nearly 50 artists from around the world are changing the face of Nelson Street in the city centre.

Members of the public will be able to see the art later in the week. Nelson Street will be closed to traffic over the weekend. Over 30 thousand people are expected to attend the event.
