Brigton Street Art

A couple of weeks ago, I was supposed to go to a vegan festival that was sadly cancelled. So, myself and two friends who were also supposed to be at the festival decided to camp in Hassocks for a few days. Just 2 short stops on the train from Brighton, it’s the perfect place to stay in the summer months if you want to visit the city considered by many to be the vegan capital of Britain. I’ve been to Brighton quite a few times, and it’s never somewhere I tire of visiting. Every time I go there, I find some cool new vegan cafe, or quirky little shop like nothing else I’ve seen. Highlights on this trip included one of the tastiest vegan and gluten free burgers I’ve ever eaten at Green Kitchen, and trying incredible teas at Bird & Blend. My two friends had never been to Brighton before, so it was also cool to see things through their eyes as a vegan visiting for the first time. I’ve blogged about Brighton before, so I’m not going to go on about it today. One thing I did want to share with you, though, is my new photos of the street art in Brighton. While there are old classics that have remained for years, there is also new work constantly appearing on walls, shop fronts, in fact pretty much anywhere you can get a spray can or a paint brush to. I also noticed that one of the streets I photographed last time is now being built over. I guess that’s a sign that things develop and move on. The builders, though, haven’t painted over the art on the surrounding walls, they’ve simply built another wall in front of them. I’d like to think that, in many years to come when that area is developed and rebuilt once again, someone will be pleasantly surprised to uncover original street art from the early 21st century.
