New street art has appeared on Jamaica Street to promote the centrepiece of Bristol’s contribution to BFI Black Star, billed as “the UK’s biggest ever season of film and television dedicated to celebrating the range, versatility and power of black actors”

The artists were responsible earlier this year for the mural of Boris Johnson and Donald Trump on Stokes Croft.
