The Prince Albert Graffiti Brighton

 

I have lived in Brighton for what must now be 7 years, however I realised, despite the abundance of street art on every corner and wall, I had never taken a single photo. I wanted to fix this and share with everyone all of the stunning art you will see around town if you come to visit. Many people label this graffiti in a negative manner and put it down as ‘trash’ and a felony, so I wanted to show the other side. Each piece is more breath taking than the last.

If anyone wants to use any of the images in this article, feel free to, but you just need to place a link back to this page, to attribute that the photography came from this site.

really creepy art

the kissing policemen - Banksy

The two kissing policemen above are actually a famous design by Banksy, hence the reason it is in a frame, as it is on the side of the Prince Albert pub and they are looking to protect it from vandals, as it clearly added a good few hundred thousand to the value of the property, not too bad! I need to get Banksy to spray on my walls!

This one isn’t quite as stunning as some, but keep scrolling down for some truly creative pieces of art.Cassette Lord

Many people might reccognise this from electric boxes all over the country. Cassette Lord is probably the artist I recognise the most behind Banksy.litter art

I loved the randomness of the one above! Couldn’t spot who it was by, but a proper laugh.stink like dog

The guy who did the design above also designed a skull in the shop opposite, which focuses on people painting pottery (mainly pottery skulls), often filled with kids parties and hen do’s.20140904_121626

I also thought it was only fair to grab his website address for anyone who wanted to see further art by this amazing artist.vs the drunken gambler amazing art cool pictures orange panda Googly Eyes

Ok, I know a fair few of you think the one above is rubbish. The main reason I took the photo was because someone had placed googly eyes on the face, which I thought was really different, creative and innovative. It will never win any awards, but it is the little additions that impress me.caveman graffiti really cool hair one funk singer from the 70's not sure what these are afro and a half CREEPY ART

Most of these were taken in the North Laines if anyone wondered where I managed to catch them all. If you know of any other good spots, please do let me know in the comments below, as I would love to make this an ongoing project, to catch all the best pieces. I really don’t think the artists get enough credit for their work, this isn’t your average tag, each one must have taken a hell of a long time to create!

I plan on exploring into Hove and other surrounding areas, but it’s pretty clear most of the designs are done in Brighton. London Road still has a lot of class graffiti which I haven’t taken photos of yet, so that is next on the agenda. Saying that, I might have uploaded them above by the time you read this, so in that case, ummm ignore me!
