It’s an older mural. I’m sure it has survived due to its beauty.
In an alley off Spadina near College, every time I see it, there’s this shadow cutting the face.
… So I took the pics anyway. I muraled for a couple of hours then as I passed on my way home, the shadow was further along the mural.
The face looked better, but the mural looked worse.
Taggers have let it survive, choosing to cluster tag the doorway, instead.

The cluster-tagged doorway is quite pretty in its own right!

I agree! The paint is peeling & the wall is crumbling, but she’s still gorgeous!
That mural of the face cut by shadow is very nice.
It’s a great mural! One of my fave street art things is faces! This face is fabulous!
This face is amazing… 🙂
I agree! 🙂
I must be honest and say I’ve never really like graffiti, but that’s mainly because what I’ve seen of it up to now has been someone writing “Baz Woz Here!” across a school wall 50 times.
I’m genuinely stunned by the quality of work you showed here and in your other posts. Wow!
I hear what you’re saying about tag graffiti. In many cities, like Toronto, the concept has really evolved. Areas that were heavily tagged have now been transformed with street art. I love it! Winnipeg has a Mural program that produces many fantastic works of art, all for everyone to see for free everyday.
Yes, I think if it’s done well it can be really beautiful and enhance the look of an area. You want people with some talent though. I don’t think my spray painting matchstick figures on a wall would do much for property values in any neighborhood.
“lol” There are many talented artists in this world!
Hmm, maybe instead of spraying matchstick figures… you could do buttons? 😉
There’s an idea. Doesn’t sound too hard. 🙂
It has many wild animals in it; the eyes in the rhinoceros are so impressive
The rhino is fab! There’s an eagle on the top right. I wish I would have gotten a decent shot of that!
Someone had really good inspiration for that work.
Agree! I was smitten when I found it.
