"There's loads of graffiti work all around Brighton, and getting to be a part of it is really great. I really like the concept [of the Storytelling Army] that people are just going to start telling stories places."
The mural, which is on the wall of Coffee@33
on Trafalgar street, was inspired by a piece of writing by one member of the Storytelling Army wrote about the kindness of people
who buy her coffee.
Sinna One, who runs art classes at Brighton Youth Centre, added:
"Those guys when they come into the art room at the youth centre, they don't always get to experience what I do as a job, and out on the street as well. It's nice because it gives them a sense of working in the community as well."
