Metrolinx Rail Corridor

Before I finish posting the Winnipeg Mural1812 – 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.

TWELVE
TWELVE

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!

  1. Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting these! They are indeed further than they were as shown in that article. I would still love to see this in person some day. Just a wonderful place for some serious pieces.

  2. You managed some great close-ups in there, Resa.
    Great artistry (such as these) are quite mesmerizing; I find it difficult to conceive of someone having the talent to create these incredible feats upon brick/cement walls… It really does overawe…!!! 🙂

Speak your art mind!
