In London I became obsessed by the search for a graffiti writer who signed himself Fume. I followed him all over west London. Railway embankments, elevated motorway parapets, abandoned exhibition halls – he left his mark on all of them. Now, in Manchester, I stumble across his northern counterpart – Fuse. His reach seems less broad and his work less ambitious, apparently limited to tags, whereas Fume also went in for throw-ups and pieces, but I’m hooked. I’m in.
