Bristol artist Jody puts the finishing touches to a giant mural of Greta Thunberg with Arctic water rising around her, flanked by a polar bear with an apocalyptic, heatwave polluted sky, painted onto the side of the Tobacco Factory in North Street, Southville. The work is part of the Upfest Summer Editions which will see all of the main Upfest walls being painted on again between April and October by a number of local, national and international street artists, while the main Upfest street art festival takes a break this year in preparation for 2020. All invited artists will be releasing special edition prints of the murals later in the year supporting the preparations for Upfest 2020. Greta Thunberg is a Swedish schoolgirl who, at age 15, began protesting about the need for immediate action to combat climate change outside the Swedish parliament and has since become an outspoken climate activist. She is known for having initiated the school strike for climate movement that formed in November 2018 and surged globally after the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December the same year. On 15 March 2019 an estimated 1.4 million students in 112 countries around the world joined her call in striking and protesting. Thunberg has received various prizes and awards for her activism. In March 2019, three members of the Norwegian parliament nominated Thunberg for the Nobel Peace Prize. In May 2019, at the age of 16, she featured on the cover of Time magazine.
