The Postman

The Postman (aka, The Postman collective, The Postman Art, The Postman Art Collective) was born in Brighton in 2018 when two people met by chance and discovered a shared love for street art. The pair became best friends and have since set off on many adventures together. They are rather private individuals and prefer to operate anonymously and work with an ever-growing circle of friends called The Postman Collective.

Their artwork is inspired by a passion for photography and iconic imagery. A love for music and pop culture manifests itself throughout their artworks. The Postman’s unique style also takes influence from their roots in graffiti culture.

Many of their art creations live exclusively on the streets and are never available for purchase. The Postman street art duo describe these pieces as ‘impermanent art’, which fades over time, and their fans love to seek these out before they disappear.

Their style of street art aims to entertain and cheer up the public. Its positive and inclusive nature allows people from diverse communities to see themselves represented and heard.

“In our daily lives, we are unwillingly bombarded with adverts that are hard to escape from. We want to spread love on the streets by creating free art for people to enjoy. Art that doesn’t discriminate. Art that surprises you in places where you least expect it. Art that is colourful, that celebrates our heroes past and present and shows them in a new light.”

The Postman initially worked as paste-up artists but have since expanded their repertoire to include murals with elements of spray paint, stencils and collage. They feel strongly that teamwork is key with combined efforts leading to greater results.

This ideology has led to The Postman collaborating with many great artists - from some of the world’s best photographers like David La Chapelle & Dave Hogan, to rock stars such as Dave Navarro, as well as environmentalists Chris Packham and Caroline Lucas.

“We constantly look to collaborate with artists and photographers. It allows us to expand our Postman Collective and expand our knowledge, whilst making friends along the way.”

Since gaining popularity, they now devote a large proportion of their time to passion projects which benefit charities close to their hearts. To date, these include NACOA, Leave NO Trace, and Brighton Pride.
