Art on the Walls

May 17th, 2021Posted by Nancy

I’ve gone on a lot of walks over the last year. I’ve got several regular routes, some of which involve the alleyways of garages that are common in my area. In my perambulations, I’ve discovered that there’s lots of interesting art on garage doors and back fences. I decided to assemble some of my favourite photos and throw in some extra shots from my travels. Art really is everywhere.

There’s a 7-11 that’s destined to become a condo (everything in Toronto becomes a condo eventually) but in the meantime boasts a beautiful, detailed mural.

These birds never fail to perk me up.

This octopus wishes to have words with you, sir.

All the garages facing a local park have been adorned with lovely graffiti. I was beginning to despair of finding something more my speed when this beauty appeared.

This was gone the next time I went by but it did seem intentional so it counts.

When a giant “TAKE THIS AWAY” sign just won’t do.

I don’t know the intention behind this but, naturally, assumed some sort of alchemical incantation to transform the world. Or at least summon the Octopus.

All the way from Florence, Italy. This little fellow was featured on many walls in 2017.

In 2015, we saw many street signs transformed by these figures. When we went back in 2017, the artist had a shop where you could buy your own stickers. So, of course, I did.

Not exactly street art – but how could I resist? Punks not Dead!
