Thousands of people flocked to Bristol this weekend to see a unique outdoor art gallery.

As part of the second See No Evil event, graffiti artists from around the world have been repainting Nelson Street all week.

A total of 40 urban artists, including Mr Jago, Flying Fortress, Nychos and Mark Bode, have used 3,500 spray cans.

All but three of the vibrant images that transformed 22 of Bristol's grey and derelict buildings last summer were painted over in shades of black and grey ahead of the festival.

The event is said to be largest street project in the UK and last year projectors were brought in to help artists create graffiti on buildings up to 10 storeys high.

See No Evil has the support of the Arts Council, London 2012 Festival and Bristol City Council.

Art lovers enjoyed a day-long New York-style block party on Saturday and a family-friendly viewing day today.

See No Evil is part of the London 2012 Festival - a summer-long arts festival throughout the country to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
