This week's Resident Thinker piece was created live at Upfest in Bristol, Europe's largest street art event. Ian Phenna was inspired by Nowhereisland's journeys and constitution. Ian's painting, and many other street art pieces made at Upfest can be seen until the end of the month in the Tobacco Factory car park, off North Street, Southville, Bristol.
