More paint has been deployed in the battle of the street artists over a controversial Starbucks mural in the North Laine.
Yesterday, Brighton and Hove News reported that two murals advertising the multinational coffee chain’s red winter cups had been painted over and defaced in the space of a week.
This morning, yet another mural appeared on the building on the corner of Trafalgar Lane and Gloucester Road, this time with a pointed message: “Starbucks should’ve paid taxes”.

However, by this afternoon that too had been painted, and the wall is currently completely black, awaiting the next instalment in the graffiti war.

This morning’s mural replaced the Starbucks Twitter hashtag with a Small Batch one, but the Brighton-born chain insisted it had nothing to do with the message.
