Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery (home of last summer’s Banksy vs Bristol) and LA’s Corey Helford Gallery team up to bring 45 artists with visual assortments “from pop surreal and neo-figurative to street art” to the UK.
Highlights to be featured: live painting of murals and a fifteen-foot tall “ice cream cone balloon structure” by Buff Monster, Mike Stilkey’s ten-foot sculptural work from 2000 books and wandering, visitor-pestering wierdos dressed as Gary Baseman art characters.
