An exhibition of the work of "Brighton's answer to Banksy" will go on display next week. 

Pattern Up, a collective of artists based in the city, has been dubbed Brighton's Banksy by artist Lucy Bryant from Whitehawk, who has since collaborated with the group.

The exhibition, part of Brighton Fringe, will show their work in Komedia in Gardner Street on Tuesday, May 30 from 12pm.

The Argus:

It is free and you do not need a ticket to attend.

Pattern Up has recently been nominated for the 2023 CGTA Awards Grassroots Organization Excellence Award.

The collective has previously raised eyebrows in the city with their art which makes political statements through posters and stickers put up across the city.

Most recently the group reacted to the King's coronation.

Large posters designed hit out at the monarchy through a mock-up screenshot of a Government Universal Credit page.

The Argus:

The art in North Street, Brighton, said King Charles, or Charles Philip Arthur George as he is referred to in the piece, can claim a whopping £7.2 million for his monthly benefit.

“The Royal Family are a family on an unjustifiable amount of benefits,” said a spokesman for the Pattern Up Collective at the time.
