Before I finish posting the Winnipeg Mural – 1812 – I’m posting these (not my best pics, but very interesting) of Canada’s largest Graffiti Mural. Ann from Ann Graphics is doing a paper on Graffiti and would like to see a few of the shots I’ve taken.
Please know that most of the time I am shooting across a ginormous section of tracks, and half the time I’m shooting into a blazing sun. I’ve got hundreds of yucky pics.
So, for Ann and the rest of you, here’s a quick tour via Slideshow. Each pic is numbered below itself to correspond with my commentary.
ONE – This panting is at the top of the beginning of the commissioned murals.
TWO – The view directly across the rails from ONE, which is Graffiti not commissioned by the city, but may be paid for the the private property it graces.
THREE – SIX is looking to the left, where you can see a decade of rogue graffiti. This is just the tip of the graffiti ice-berg Toronto is trying to get rid of. I’ve recognized at least one of the tag artists as part of the ensemble hired to do the Graffiti Mural.
SEVEN – I’ve gone a half block north to Queen Street in order to cross East under the tracks so I can view from the other side.
EIGHT – TWELVE are views of the reclaiming project on the sound wall.
THIRTEEN – At the south end I go West under the King Street tracks to view the project from the south end. I will be going back to finish my work!
