Marmite On Euston Road

Marmite On Euston Road

Marmite… a disgusting tasting spread that I personally can’t stand! No not that one, but the ‘Marmite Street art mural covering a building on London’s Euston Road. You either hate it or love it, much like the black sticky stuff!

The brightly coloured walls of what is not the prettiest building I have ever seen have been plastered in brightly coloured paint, has been called vandalism by some, and a vibrant piece of modern art by others. I can see both sides of the coin, as they say!

‘Marmite’ can be found on the walls of the the Megaro Hotel, across the road from the St Pancras station on Euston Road and was created by Agents of Change. I think I like this Marmite a wee bit better than the one that comes in a jar.

I read an interesting quote from the hotel’s owner Tony Megaro β€œit’s an impressive building, not an ugly building that we want to camouflage.” Does covering the building in colourful paint not do exactly that…
