toronto grafitti

Got a different perspective on Toronto’s famous “Graffiti Alley” this weekend. If you don’t know it, YOU ARE CRAZY. It’s famous and awesome and can be found near Queen/Spadina, south side back alley.

Learned history of graffiti, vocabulary and styles.  Someone covered the Banksy on Hotel Ocho. Talked about the controversy around graffiti in our city.  Lots of it.  One of the pieces in my video is “Blob Ford”. SO many cool ones. Good artists. Thanks to Tour Guys & Jaunt.ca for the tour.

Nice to get to0 know a little more about Toronto.  Good collection of Toronto street art here. I like this one, obvs. haha

I was postered on Queen Street a few years back by Toronto Poster Boy.  They were big & bright, done with wheat paste. I really like stencil painting now.
