Graffiti spot of the day: Kitten at Garner Street’s black palace

garner street cat Although not a cat person I think this little painting is quite lovely, and I do hope the council overlooks it. It’s painted onto the wall of what I think of as the black palace, a big warehouse on the corner of Coate and Garner Street, just off Hackney Road.

Green-fingered Kingsland Road

Does this qualify as a ‘site specific response’? (spoken in art critic tones). Spotted on the way back from Vietnamese noodles in ‘Little Hanoi’, also known as the southern end of Kingsland Road.

The midnight cat

graffiti

Walking to the Barbican tonight, I noticed this huge black cat on Kingsland Road. I always see graffiti and think – I must take a photo of that – only to look for it and find that the council has scrubbed it off overnight. Three strange, ghostly white figures on a wall on Dalston Lane have now disappeared, leaving just a shadow. I used to like looking at them and always planned to get my camera out one day. Maybe someone else took a photo of them….? Anyway, at least this midnight cat won’t go unrecorded.
