Banksy is the best known graffiti artist to come out of Bristol

A new web based graffiti map has been launched in Bristol, giving users a virtual tour of the city's street art.

Neil Clark, from the University of the West of England (UWE), is behind the idea, which includes over 150 mapped locations and photos.

Neil said: "I couldn't find a website that brought together all the street art locations, so I thought I might as well make one myself."

The website includes guides to Banksy, Feek, Felix (FLX) Braun's work.

Neil added: "I'm hoping that UWE students and others will use the map to visit key locations and hidden gems all over the city.

"Hopefully it will encourage people to go and explore Bristol a bit. Everyone knows about Stokes Croft as it's hard to miss and the high profile Banksy pieces but there's so much more to see."

The site also taps into Google Street View helping users to navigate around the city, and features Bristol graffiti videos and links.

Some of UWE's famous street art alumni include Graham Dews aka Paris, Xenz, Mr Jago, and Will Barras who are all successful artists whose work can be seen in both galleries and on the streets of Bristol and London.

UWE is represented on the map with both Bower Ashton and Frenchay Campus being pin pointed where people can view the Freshers 2007 Graffiti wall.
