The Relaxation Centre

First it was gorillas in Bristol, now meet the Beautiful Bugs of Bedminster

This month sees the launch of a new beautiful big trail in Bristol – with large sculptures dotted around Bedminster

Beautiful Bugs of Bedminster

Beautiful Bugs of Bedminster

Eighty-two unique bugs will be taking over Bedminster in Bristol this summer. Visitors to the area will be able to spot a giant butterfly attached to a building, oversized stag beetles in the streets and an army of caterpillars crawling over shops and road signs, each painted by a prolific urban artist or school from the city.

Each unique and beautiful bug will take pride of place on buildings, in shops and throughout Bedminster’s streets, with organisers inviting visitors to spot each of the critters while experiencing the area’s diverse amenities, shops and eating establishments.

The art trail is organised by Upfest gallery and Bedminster Town Team, recruiting cutting edge urban artists to lead the project including SPZero76, Mr Jago, Copyright and Cheo. The initiative is being supported by The Southern Co-operative which has a store on North Street.

The art trail will launch on Thursday 14 March at 5.30pm-7pm when Bristol’s Renegade Artists will transform into bugs themselves on East Street. Expect fire breathing fireflies, acrobatic beetles and a hula-hooping caterpillar. Bug-themed food and drink will be available to guests who attend the unveiling of the final bug in preparation for the trail’s official start date on 16 March 2013.
