A few weeks ago, artist Gemma Compton, along with her partner Copyright, took on an art project of a different nature…spray painting a VW ahead of Upfest, Europe’s largest street art festival to be held in Bedminster, Bristol between 23rd and 25th July 2016.
Gemma has been selected as the festival’s 2016 artist - and she is also their first ever female festival artist.
As one of her projects for the festival, the transformation of a regular VW Transporter is incredible – as you can see for yourself.
Talented artists travel from 25 countries and across the UK to paint live on 30,000 sq ft of surfaces in front of 25,000 visitors. The affordable art sale, music stages and art workshops round off a visually spectacular weekend!

Gemma is currently working with a talented bunch of film makers from Friction Collective who are making a mini documentary about her work. The van was her first project with Copyright and they have been filming the duo over the past few weeks to get to know the artist behind the work. Find out more at: http://www.frictioncollective.com/
