Iphoneography: 48 Hours in Brighton

 

 

Brighton is probably the most colourful city I’ve walked around in.

Everywhere I look, this is a city truly inspired….
Encouraging its citizens to express their talent and giving them a license  to entertain

 

Whether it’s a dude random playing on his rickety piano in the middle of the street….

 

Brighton: Let me entertain you

 

Old Tire Swingers

 

Or the cool local band- Old Tire Swingers…..a traditional old time string band music.

Brighton is very nonconformist- a label that I think it revels in.….

 

Coppers Kissing: Banksy in Brighton

 

This is summed none better than Bansky’s iconic Kissing Coppers on the side of the Prince Albert pub.

Unfortunately because of vandalism issues, the original has been shipped off to New York but visitors can still see the replica in the exact same spot.

 

Brighton breathtaking streetart scene is very much ingrained in the city’s DNA: It’s streetart is a form of expression that imprints the city with the spirit of its artists.

Here are some images from my walkabout around town : Enjoy.
