A group of graffiti artists from the MSK crew were invited to cover 100 meters of hoarding along the sea facing part of the Brighton i360 site last Sunday (9th August). I went along to document the process, last year there was a smaller event where I met four of the artists that were painting on Sunday. This time round 14 artists were painting all day: 192, Aroe, Alert, Aups, Avk, Gary, Jiroe, Morf, Msk, Owed, Rebus, Rench, Twesh, Vodka, Warg and Yesb. Usually when I’m shooting for i360 I am in trousers with hi-vis and hard hat, it was nice to be shooting in the sunshine with my shorts, baseball cap and Birkenstocks on.
