Kill it with Love – Petrusco on Tralfalgar Street in Brighton’s North Laine is defaced

3 March 2015. An new piece of Street Art in central Brighton has been partially defaced. Petrusco’s image of a naked hippy woman, glowing with light, offering a flower to a dagger wielding soot-black man in a stormtrooper helmet, has had the female entity removed by ripping of his paper-based, shop-front-high artwork. The piece was installed in February when this photo was taken.

    Such a shame, it is a striking piece of work.

    I got a few shots of it myself…

      Yeah, striking and maybe controversial. It contains stereotypes but is a comment on stereotype. It invites us to ask ‘is that how life is?’
