Field Visit (27 September 2018)

Between 182 Bath Street and 147 Blytheswood Street is a small gap site on Sauchiehall Lane which is currently used as an informal car park. On the west side of the car park the E-facing exterior wall of the adjacent property are a number of tags and throw ups. Two of the throw ups are of particular significance to the Scottish graffiti community. They were undertaken when there was a single storey, flat-roofed building on the site, which has subsequently been demolished. The throw up on the right was undertaken by Ejek and the one on the left by Laps. The Ejek throw up was undertaken in 2000 and comprises a pink outline with a white fill. The Laps throw up was undertaken in 2002 and it comprises a white outline with a faded green fill. Laps has subsequently passed away. They are recognised by the graffiti community as being part of their heritage. Subsequent discussions with graffiti writers have revealed that Laps is not desceased and the rumour was part of their urban legend.
