Smoky has a real storybook imagination.
Together, Smoky and Shalak, aka Candestinos, are painting the world.
I love all the details.
The little bird homes with pirate flag on the back of the bicycle.
The scout in the carrier basket filled with flowers.
Bluebirds of happiness.
Got lucky with this shot!

I should venture out and explore Toronto too…i live in Brampton and work in Mississauga.
These are some serious adorable works!
Toronto is a treasure trove of street art! For your first visit, check out Toronto’s famous graffiti alley. It runs in the alley south of Queen West between Spadina & almost to Bathurst. Start at Spadina. You won’t be disappointed.
There’s no parking during rush hours.
Ok, this helps. Thanks!
It’s really amazing, Resa. I don’t know how you can find those fantastic paintings ❤
I've never seen such a concentration of artist and joy. I think it is a beautiful city to live in!
Happy days XX
Well dear Hanna, you have the gift of finding an amazing concentration of nature’s beauty where you live. I have the gift of finding my city’s beauty in street art.
Toronto is a wonderful city to live in.
Happy days to you, too! XXX
Thank you, Resa ❤ ❤ ❤
This is fabulous! I love everything about it. The skull and cross-bone flag, the scout. The colors are great and love the bike. Wonderful piece. Thank you so much.
It’s a great piece of street art. I’m so happy it’s in my collection, and TY for the reblog!

Perfect lucky shot! Love the details too like a fine painting.
Agree, yet it is street art! There are many fabulous artists showing their talents in the streets. It is a great way to get noticed! Some are actually making $ now!
So awesome Resa. I was in Calgary in June. I didn’t get to go mural sight seeing!
Oh, Calgary is a very fab city, and does have some neat street art. Toronto (my home) & Montreal are Canada’s big street art cities. If you get to Toronto, and I’m not working, I’ll take you on a Street Art tour! Montreal has a Street Art Festival that runs for 3 months every summer. I can’t get enough of it.
Then there is Winnipeg, which is an all Murals City. Fantastic. I go there every 2 or 3 years to catch up.
I will definitely take you up on your generous offer Resa…if I get back to Canada any time soon. ❤
A lot on this one made me smile. Great color palate with balance between soft and bright colors. The main feature immediately jumps out … but when one takes the time to notice, there is other great work in this piece!
These artists are very imaginative, talented and have great spirit. I’m so glad you like it!
A sweet mural, Resa. Certainly has brought a smile to my face. I love the way the artist has camouflaged the green bins with ‘green’ background alongside the natural flora; a sweet touch!
Seems you keep plucking fabulous street art from thin air. And yet, I know you are not. It is beginning to surprise me just how many talented artists must be trying to get noticed/known.
The city is filled with artists who paint in the streets. Some have gone on to do gallery shows, some are doing murals for $$$ and a couple are doing oversized posters for in the windows very large food chains. 😀 Now there is a whole new crop of artists out here trying to get noticed. I see no end to this Street Art movement! xoxoxoxo
Those are fabulous.
It’s like watching a fairy tale go by!
I thought the detail and all the little easter egg like surprises were neat. Into the colors and the pirate flag and the scout in the basket of flowers. Definitely more than a thousand words to describe this one. 🙂
It is a very sweet fairy tale mural! 😀
I think if Scheherazade had 1002 nights, she would have told this tale.
Sorry for the late reply, Just getting over a wicked 2 week sinus infection.
The weather has gone bananas up here! It was 102F one day, then 68F with cold winds from the north the next. AHHHHCHOOOO!
Wow, this is one cool mural!
Yeah…. agree!!!! Have a fab weekend, dear Carolee!
Thanks, you too, dear Resa! xo
Love the colors.
This is an amazing mural with so much detail. I love the vibrant colors and that lucky shot of the girl riding her bike. The bee and bluebird are also awesome. Great find and photography, Resa!
It is one fun mural. Thank you!
There’s so much to look at in this one! The bike is so cool with its rider 😉 And the detail on that bee too!!
Wow and wow! Amazing detail, superb.
Love the double bicycle shot 🙂
