Banksy's The Mild Mild West
Next head to Stokes Croft, one of the most graffitied areas of Bristol and a hub for creatives. With lots of independent cafes and restaurants, this is also a sensible place to take a break from chasing Banksy’s art to fill up on good food. It’s no surprise that you can find a Banksy mural smack bang in the middle of this part of the city. Featuring one of the artist’s characteristic play on words, The Mild Mild West was painted in response to riot police violently breaking up illegal raves in the 1990s. It gives a nod to the area’s rebellious streak as well as condemning the action of the police at the time. #banksy #streetart #bristol
