2007. St Werburghs tunnel (61)

I think that Subtle is a really classy graffiti writer, and his collaboration with Rezwonk at Dean Lane last year will go down as one of my all time favourites. This is another humdinger, beautifully designed and executed and with a little character just for good measure.

The character is Dexter from the 1990s cartoon Dexter’s Laboratory, and he really adds something special to this piece. I love the way the bubbles from his flask are replicated all over the writing.

This is a high-quality piece which is well conceived and nicely proportioned. Although there is complexity there, it is really easy on the eye. More please.
