A little bit off the beaten track, and in a street that doesn’t have much of a graffiti culture, is this rather nice Taboo piece featuring Snagglepuss, a Hannah Barbera creation. On my arrival, the warehouse was just opening up, and I think the proprietors considered me a little odd photographing the graffiti outside their premises, but they let me get on with it.

The writing is characteristically unruly, with each letter taking on no particular consistency or form, but the whole being unmistakably Taboo. I am confused by the orange line, which, to my eye, disrupts the flow, and I think it might have been added by someone else, although with Taboo, you never really know. Nice to see this piece on my travels around the city.
