Brand new art trail comes to Bedminster just in time for Christmas

Netflix, Aardman and Upfest have partnered to bring a very special Christmas mural trail to the streets of Bristol, to celebrate the launch of Aardman’s new animated short Robin Robin.

One of Bristol’s most celebrated street artists, Alex Lucas, was hand selected by Aardman’s Dan Ojari and Mikey Please to recreate the film’s characters in her own, unique style.

They said this: “It’s been important to us to acknowledge the local craft and creative community within Bristol so what is more fitting to the city than a mural trail.”

Painting began on the 8th of November where Alex created 11 murals in Bedminster, finally completing the trail on the 23rd. You will instantly recognise the whimsical characters from the ‘purrfectly villainous Cat’ to Robin Robin herself as you explore through the streets to get a glimpse of them all. You can start the trail on North Street at McColl’s Newsagents and end up at the Rope Walk on Bedminster Parade, paying particular attention to the Upfest Gallery, Rhubarb Jumble, Toyville, Viva La Mexican, The Emporium and more along the way.

Bristol has always been a city of creativity and community, and this new arts trail is another perfect example of this. With the release of Robin Robin coming to Netflix tomorrow, there’s no better time to head to Bedminster and check out the new paint.

When you’re out trailing the murals, make sure you’re tagging @Aardman, @lucas_antics, @Netflix and @Upfest and use #RobinRobinBristol
