BRISTOL, ENGLAND - JULY 27:  A construction worker moves a traffic cone in front of artwork by Odeith and is part of the 2016 Upfest on July 27, 2016 in Bristol, England. The annual event, which this year helped celebrate 45 years of the Mr Men and Little Miss book series, started in 2008 and is said to be the largest free street art and graffiti festival in Europe. The festival now attracts more than 300 artists including Inkie, Jody, Pichi & Avo and Leon Keer from 25 countries to paint live on walls and surfaces around Bedminster and Southville areas of the city of Bristol, the hometown of guerrilla artist Banksy. Some of the graffiti art work is painted on moveable boards and temporary hoardings, but murals on some venues and buildings remain all year until the next festival.
