In recent years Brighton & Hove has become the home of an exciting and ever-changing display of the finest graffiti in Britain, some of which rivals the remains of the Berlin Wall for sheer beauty and extraordinary creativity.
Our buildings are proud to sport some of the best graffiti art around, colourful and thrilling, a treat for the eye and food for the spirit. It’s a wholly positive and still-growing trend and the work on display is simply breathtaking. So where can you find all this spray-painted wonderfulness?
Where to find the best Brighton street graffiti
About the Cassette Lord
If you’ve noticed the city’s boring green telecoms boxes, many of which used to be covered in ugly graffiti tags, being transformed into funky pieces of retro art, you’ll be familiar with the work of our very own Martin Middleton, AKA Cassette Lord.
As well as decorating the boxes he’s also into all sorts of urban artwork including sculpture. He describes his style as retro, referencing familiar objects and shapes people recognise from childhood and striking a powerful emotional chord.
Cassette Lord’s fab images appear all around the city, so keep your eyes peeled. You can also see them on the artist’ Facebook page.
