Will Barras

Award-winning animation director Will Barras is based in London but is recognised as one of the new crop of artists associated with Bristol's renowned street art scene... though - for the sake of transparency - it's worth pointing out that no one is saying that he is Banksy.

Barras was a founding member of the infamously progressive Scrawl Collection and exhibits his paintings and illustrations around the world.

"The Home of Brewing"
No doubt enjoying a few pints of Belhaven would make anyone see nearby buildings turn into moving works of art, but this commercial for the Scottish brewers does a neat job of portraying the brand's HQ as a dynamic hub. Animation depicting the brewing process and scenes of general merriment are splashed onto the brewery walls, with the illustrative style projecting a skilful approach to their beverages.
