Tai Snaith – aka [Pets] is a female street artist as well as a more ‘conventional’ artist, who has been inspired by many children’s book illustrations, old books, stories, domestic crafts and found objects. One of her favourite characters is her – Elvis Hooraffe.
Tai’s history evolves around her original daubing and writing on walls, which later progressed to stickers. Her ‘call signs’ in street art oscillated between nomenclature of ‘Pet Love’ or ‘Pet Hate’. As an example, items that received a ‘Pet Hate’ were ugly [usually representing commercial advertising]. For more information about Tai Smith, check out her website. “Hear, Hear, said the Hooraffe!”
