Wahaca Brighton opened its doors in April, bringing the brand’s award-winning style of Mexican market eating to Brighton.
Wahaca takes pride in showcasing street and graffiti artists’ work in its restaurants and invites the world’s best to leave their mark on each site.
In Brighton, the 130-cover restaurant features graffiti artwork from Mexico City-based painter and printmaker Mazatl who is known for taking part in collectives that seek social, political and environmental justice.
The street artist’s work is characterised by a strong use of detailed black and white, interspersed with hints of colour, and predominantly features animals which are used to symbolise struggle and the indomitable spirit.
Sustainability, too, is of the utmost importance to Wahaca and each of its restaurants is designed to have as low an environmental impact as possible.
The restaurant group has recently been certified Carbon Neutral by Natural Capital Partners, becoming the first restaurant in the UK to be awarded the certificate.
