Free Magnetic Art

Welcome to our website. It features 530 artworks from 239 artists. If you've just found a magnet in Brighton then you've come to the right place.

Each magnet has number. Match that with the number on the online catalogue to the right and you've found your artist. If you want to find out more about the artist then the majority of them have a link on the artists page above.

If you're thinking of coming along on Saturday 7th May. Then I'll be there with Dean Reddick, Peter S Smith, Stuart Simler, Jane Denman, Bryan Benge, Stephanie Wilkinson, Bill Mudge and many more.

We'll be placing the magnets from 9.30am onwards, taking photos etc. Then inviting the public to pick one up from 10am onwards.

We're going to stagger placing them too. 300+ at 10am, 100 at 11am and the final batch at noon.

We may have to adapt to the arrival of the Children Parade at some point.

Please drop by, say hello and pick up your favourite artwork for FREE.


ps. I've got my eye on Number 393 by Ted Macrorie.

BBC South East Today Coverage 4th May

On Wednesday 4th May at 9.30am I'm meeting a crew from BBC South East Today at the Pier to film a short piece about our magnet exhibition.

If you'd like to come down then I'd really appreciate the support. Bring your magnet with you so we can try and include it on the TV. If you havent got my mobile number then drop me an email and I'll pass it on, then I can tell you of any last minute changes.

Everything ready for Saturday 7th. Dean's cut the magnets. Please come along and say hello, place some magnets on bollards and get your photo on the website, like Jane Denman's Sky Blue artists (above).

On the saturday we may have to be flexible because of the childrens parade but i'll try and keep you informed with any changes. If in doubt, someone will be around with a Brighton Open t-shirt on, so just ask.
