Bordalo II’s Trash Seagull at FatBoy Slims Big Beach Cafe, Hove 2018

Portuguese urban artist Bordalo II‘s latest mural can be found at Fatboy Slim‘s Big Beach Cafe, nestled in the Hove Lagoon, in the sunny seaside town of Brighton & Hove.

The Big Beach Cafe is a stones throw from the sea, and a perfect place for Bordalo II to bring one of his ‘Big Trash Animals’, to highlight and bring much needed awareness to our waste production and the plastic pollution in our oceans.

The ‘Big Trash Animal’ of choice was undoubtably the seagull. Not only because the flock of seagulls that circle Brighton’s beaches, but also the nickname of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, which DJ Norman Cook is a regular.

Bordalo II took 2 days to build the seagull, made out of Brighton’s trash and plastics collected by the city’s bin men and stored in the DJ’s garage.

The Big Beach Cafe also supports a clean ocean and hosts the local  ‘Surfers against sewage beach clean’.

The cafe has a great community feel…

So take yourself down to the Hove Lagoon and check it out now! Enjoy Bordalo’s Trash Seagull, the offerings of this super friendly cafe, and the best ‘Fatboy Burger’.
