Brighton Street Art in the North Laines

I’ve just spent a chilly few days exploring the streets of Brighton and spotted these amazing murals in the backstreets of the North Laines.

Despite the grey and cold they really do brighten up what would otherwise be dull and dirty back alleys. They have been up for a few years now and remain untouched, whoever said graffiti attracts vandalism was wrong. They haven’t been flyposted or vandalised.

Surely they must be inspiring to other young street artists and people visiting the city. The North Laines area is a great place to shop, eat and drink, with lots of little independent boutiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

When I lived in Brighton and Hove five years ago I used to like walking down to the marina from the city centre. Just before you reached the marina car park there was a stretch of disused land with a long stretch of concrete wall and some amazing ever changing murals. I didn’t have time to discover if this stretch was still there. I hope it is.
