Bristol is home to the controversial street artist ‘Banksy’ and this has brought a lot of art tourism to the city. Fans of Banksy’s work come to the city in coach loads and explore the city for his works.
But what does this mean for you?
Since Banksy, street art has become more widely accepted around Bristol. Large murals and pieces are dotted all over the city as the creativity is widely accepted (especially in areas such as Stokes Croft)
Not a street artist?
Do not fret! Bristol is an extremely creative city and has many art galleries and independent art shops, selling all kinds of local art.
Bristol is for you, with successful pottery companies such as Bristol China and Stokes Croft China taking over the scene and with many successful potters featuring in one of the many art galleries.
Art Gallery Galore
It shouldn’t be hard to find a gallery that will feature your art when there’s so many of them! There are plenty of small independent galleries such as Clifton Fine Art as well as the larger more popular ones such as Arnolfini, Spike Island, and many more.

There are also a lot of markets around the city in which you may be able to sell your works on a stall for a fee.
