Brighton’s street art, especially in North Laine, is now considered an important tourist attraction!

Photographed on a daily basis

Murals such as the Hair Cutter in St George’s Mews (created by ‘Snug’), the giant chessboard in Kensington Street (Run DMC by Odisy and Aroe) and of course the reproduction of the famous Kissing Coppers in Frederick Place (by Bansky) are being photographed on a daily basis by Brighton’s visitors.

A fire-breathing dragon

There is now [September 2012] a new mural on the corner of North Road and Robert Street showing a giant blue fire-breathing dragon, again by Odisy, while the art works on the various junction boxes change on a regular basis.
