The resulting huts will be exhibited together in an extraordinary re-imagining of the familiar seaside scene. In keeping with the holiday theme, the show also offers artist’s original postcards, from some of the worlds most influential urban artists.

Art + Believe and Lois O’Hara’s work will be familiar to many whose work adorns walls, floors and buses across Brighton and Hove.
