As mentioned in previous post, I went to see an exhibition in Brighton titled ‘The Beautiful and The Canned 2009‘. This is an event showcasing street art as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival. I’ve never caught on the whole street art scene until J came over for a holiday in London and we went hunting for Banksy art all over London.
This event was held in the Brighton Youth Centre and it was a very small venue. Basically the artists did their thing all over the basketball court and also the staircase and the entrance. They were also selling their painting. After the show, they proceeded to a bar in town centre and started doing their thing again. Too bad we didnt stay to see (cos we’re all too tired by then so we decided to head home).
J – Next time you’re in town, we must visit Brighton!!
Here’s what I see.
