A new bubble wall emerges.....

Under the directorship of Richard "Popx Art" Baker, a new bubble wall is emerging on the exposed Funky Pumpkin wall in New Brighton. Popx is working alongside youth to create meaningful bubbles, plus anyone else is invited to add their own bubble. Brighton is becoming an artistic wonderland :)

And the wall came tumbling down........

Three years on from the quakes, and buildings in  Brighton continue to be demolished due to structural damage, taking with them some wonderful artwork. The demolition of one wall however, often exposes yet another wall waiting for an enthusiastic new artist to come along and weave their magic :)

Transitional Installations

Mural Madness was always about beautifying naked spaces in Brighton, and being temporary by nature. Earthquake recovery. As buildings came down, exposed walls were beautified with amazing artworks by talented artists. A second phase has now begun. More buildings are being demolished, taking their artworks with them. Sad, but exciting, as it means progress for Brighton. The good news is that new murals continue to appear, and artists continue to offer their talents. The evolution of Mural Madness continues!
