Here are some examples of various murals, graffiti and a sculpture I saw while visiting various parts of Toronto on Sunday:
I saw this sculpture on the side of a building as I was riding the street car through the west side of town. I made note of the location and got off on the return trip so I could get a photo.
I had also seen a cool mural so I got off the streetcar again so I could get a photo. I had to take the shot on an angle to get it all in (without the clutter of cars parked in front of it).
This was on an apartment building on a side street (perhaps where the artist lives?).
Those were all taken in the morning. Let me jump ahead to my trip home at the end of the day and show this mural which is on the side of a building about 4 blocks from where my Airbnb was located.
The reason I wanted to jump ahead in time with the photo above is that all the others photos in the remainder of this post were found in “Graffiti Alley,” a 3-block alley on the west side of town just a short distance from the main east-west street. Yes, there really is such a place:
These next two go together. Because I was literally in an alley I couldn’t get far enough back to get the entire theme (a lobster DJ) in one shot, and shooting it in an angle didn’t do it justice.
