Brighton Street Art #2

Spent a few days down in Brighton seeing my son’s family. It has been a year since we were last down and lots of new murals had sprung up, adorning back streets and telephone junction boxes across the city. We even caught artist Req working on a junction box in North Street.

  1. My guess is unless it is commissioned a lot of street art is considered illegal, even if it improves the quality of the area. Sad really. I think there is something wonderful about turning a street corner and seeing a spectacular new piece of art on the wall.
