Wild Walls - a street art project from Louis Masai and Wildscreen
Bristol-based conservation charity Wildscreen is working with world-renowned street artist Louis Masai to create two murals, one in BS1 and the other in BS5, to raise awareness of two lesser-known endangered animals, pangolins and sea turtles.

Louis’ artwork is featured on walls around the world and his popular patchwork style will be a key element of these two new Bristol-based pieces. The pangolin piece will raise awareness for the world’s only scaly mammal and the world’s most trafficked animal. The sea turtle will raise awareness about the issue of marine plastics and their impacts on our oceans.

The murals are being created to mark the launch of Bristol’s Wildscreen Festival 2016, the world’s biggest festival of wildlife film and imagery. It will also create an eye-catching legacy of the 2016 Festival by uniting two areas in which Bristol is world famous – street art and natural world TV and film.
