The finishing touches.

The finishing touches are made to a portrait of John Lennon by the Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra on the final day of 'Upfest', Europe's largest street art festival in Bristo. The annual event, in the hometown of guerrilla artist Banksy, started in 2008 and is now Europe's biggest street-art festival, attracting more than 350 artists from across the globe to live paint on walls and surfaces in 37 locations around Bedminster and Southville over three days. 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
