Snoopy Inspired Mural in Haggerston, London painted by street artist Fanakapan.

London-based street artist Fanakapan recently completed work on these double metal gates tucked away on a quiet side street along the Regents canal on Canal street, away from the throngs of London street art tours and the street art instagramarazzi who usually swarm around the street and graffiti artists painting in popular street art hotspots in Shoreditch and Brick Lane, London while they are trying to paint their mural work.

Fanakapan has been quietly painting this hidden little spot in Haggerston for some time now, tucked away from the tour groups and photographers all who inevitably want to stop and speak to the artist and take their pictures. 

This of course is now part and parcel when painting in busier London locations such as Shoreditch and Brick Lane, but it can sometimes still be overly distracting for the artists trying to complete their mural. 

With Fanakapans studio nearby, he has been able to take his time working on the murals, taking breaks, and going back and forth to his studio without the worry someone might share a photo of the incomplete mural on social media. The gate's proximity to his studio has also meant he has been able to refresh the gates with new mural work on a regular basis. 

The nature of spray paint allows for the repainting of the gates over and over again and Fanakapan has painted multiple mural works on these gates. Earlier works have included the 3D chrome balloon graffiti octopus piece pictured below and a Neochrome Skull Mural who have previously featured on Hookedblog.

For his latest mural work on the metal gates, artist Fanakapan painted a quick piece that features the much-loved fictional characters Woodstock and Snoopy from Charles M. Schulz's comic strip Peanuts, with Woodstock the bird painted as a flying helium balloon.
