Chinese Artist Bao to take part in Bristol’s Urban Paint Festival
24 Jul, 2018
BWECB members met Chinese Artist Bao today over lunch at Wongs. She is here to take part in Bristol’s Urban Paint Festival at the weekend.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of UPFest and to celebrate they have struck a partnership with the Simpsons. Bao has been chosen by Mat Groening, the founder of the Simpsons cartoon series, to be one of three artists painting Simpsons inspired pieces. Based in Hong Kong Bao is a full time artist painting commissions for companies but also her own murals as well as working with schools in less developed areas. She draws inspiration from Japanese Manga comics and has recently been painting in Brisbane in Australia.
Come and see her work on the side of the Spotted Cow pub on North St as it takes shape on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July.
