Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Lady Aiko is well known for her work with Banksy, Takashi Murakami and FAILE, but since becoming a solo artist in her own right Lady Aiko has developed a distinctive style mixing together American contemporary art movements such as Abstractionism, POP Art, Graffiti and Street Art with the Japanese traditional aesthetic in which she was originally trained.
While Lady Aiko is in Brighton she will also be curating the opening festivities of The Costume Games on Wednesday 16th September where she will help transform the Old Steine Gardens into Costume City.
The Costume Games presented by MOSHIMO, is a riotous, five day festival where the entire city of Brighton dresses up as its alter ego to celebrate the opening weekend of Rugby World Cup 2015.
The Costume Games are all about fun, creativity and participation, where everyone is invited to dress up and play.
September is a big month for Brighton as it will be one of 11 host cities for the 2015 Rugby World Cup on the weekend of 19/20th September where Japan play South Africa and Samoa play USA.
