I don't think its of English origin.

Gang slang, maybe? Turf markers.

Often stylized and heavy with symbology, gang graffiti is designed to identify boundaries to other local gangs while remaining innocuous enough to throw off police investigators.

Those look like letters to me, not an image.

Lots of crime in the area believe it or not due to Roma street gangs, just wondering if it's possible of Romanian origin.

Ya prob just some local gang or a tagger and that is is his tag.
And i hope you do see that it does in fact spell "clue", so it very well could be of english origin

Thats also a possible explanation and one I already postulated to the person when asked to find out its meaning.

I see "QX", although there are many different variations to right in tag.

I can't find any mention of what "clue" means although it seems to be popular amongst graffiti artists and taggers. This journalist from Canada has also been stymied in his search for its meaning.

Yes I think the general consensus is that it does indeed say Clue, as to the meaning i imagine it's of a personal nature or nickname.

Which will be received as welcome news to the old dude who was thinking more along the lines of her home being tagged or marked by some kind of criminal gang.
