We’ve just had a week off work and amongst other things we spent a thoroughly enjoyable few days in Brighton. We stayed in the Umi hotel with a lovely seafront view and a pretty decent full English breakfast.
The weather was typically tricky, warm and sunny to start with turning into heavy grey clouds, a brisk wind and fairly persistent rain. Perfect for browsing The Lanes, eating cake and spending lots of 2p’s in the amusement arcades – British bliss!
Here are a few pics from our visit that caught my eye…
I love this stuff… Cassette Lord is a Graffiti artist responsible for decorating these boring old switch boxes as part of a council community project. You can read an interview with him here and view lots more pics of his cassette grafitti on Flickr
St George’s Mews hairdressers is just one example of the stunning wall graffiti around Brighton
Couldn’t resist this giant decorated cat in the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery foyer
And the beautiful merry-go-round painted horses on Brighton Pier
Oh look, what a surprise… Alan Pitchfork on Brighton beach leaving behind some pebble self-portrait graffiti. He did it with a Sharpie pen – they’re supposed to be permanent so the sea will surely be the best test of that! But I guess we’ll never know the answer…
