So, I found another painted alley.
I haven’t finished the last alley, or the one before that and a couple of others.
I figure I’ll just go back to posting those other alleys, soon.
This alley was painted as a tribute to Barry Luksenberg, who performed under the name “Feel Good”. At 24, he was killed in a motorcycle accident while travelling across Vietnam with a friend.
He and his crew “512” were based out of the St. Clair West neighbourhood, which hosts this lane.
This lane has been officially named by the city, as Feel Good Lane.

Very interesting and beautiful concept.
I agree. It’s a gorgeous alley.
I’m fortunately cursed with not being able to go anywhere without finding street art!
So many artists, and concepts are worth seeing in the streets and alleys.
This is amazing work – and a wonderful memorial.
Agree! Thanks for the visit! 😀
Absolutely beautiful and such a lovely tribute.
It is a fab tribute. The alley does an interesting zig-zag. In the middle of the zig-zag is a children’s park (a very tiny one). The paintings around the park are definitely more naive, yet still wonderful.
I found some beautiful boxes today.
There seems to be not enough time to post all of the art I find.

Now that is strong. Love the detail in the hair.
It’s a beauty! I found another beauty today. It’s an endless joy at this point.
You are a successful hunter.
😀 of sorts! 😀
That’s soooo beautiful. These wall artists are incredibly creative. An amazing series Resa. 🦋
It is beautiful! There’s a lot of fab art in this alley, as in many alleys. Th re’s 2 alleys with a butterfly theme. I need to get to both of them. 🦋
Reblogged this on Tempest.
Brilliant artists!!! Wow, I can’t believe there is all this street art in Toronto. I have to hang out at train yards to see street art!!!
It’s a painted city! Most of the art in the rain yards here is hard core graffiti. There are 2 areas along the tracks now that have been painted by artists. It’s quite wonderful.
I would live to see that. I love graffiti!!!
I have better pics now, but I’d have to hunt through files on USB sticks, and I’m at least 300 posts behind. Here is one of our rail murals. https://graffitiluxandmurals.com/2013/04/04/metrolinx-rail-corridor/
Thanks for sharing that post!! I did a post on some of the graffiti I have sen come through our rail yards. I titled it “Writing the Trains”. I caught some pretty good ones – but not as good as your murals!!
Wonderful tribute, Resa!
I love that the lane was given this name. Feel Good Lane sure has a nice ‘feel’ to it.
You sure are finding a lot of great art lately! 🙂
There’s lots more art in this tribute alley. 😀 Yes, I’m finding oodles of street art. I’m way behind in posting, but I have only so much time. Nonetheless, I will post on! My favourite part is walking and finding the art.
I put my phone on airplane mode.I can take pics, but no one can get ahold of me. It’s my most peaceful time. I think we are all allowed “me” time. 😀 xoxoxoxo
That sure grabs your attention, huh? And I went off to do some learning about Barry Luksenberg, too.
He was so young, only 24! There’s a lot more art in this tribute alley, which I will post from time to time. 😀
Oh my goodness, Resa!!! Dynamite! Just wowowowow! These artists you find are just spectacular! Thank you SO much for sharing!! 😘
IKR! It just keeps getting better and better! 😘
Wow! Thank you for sharing, Resa!! R.I.P. Barry Luksenberg, but is a very good tribute to his former work, i think. Michael
It’s a wonderful tribute! Thank you for viewing the post, Michael!
Loved the creativity and art work of this one.
It’s a real beauty!
Hey, is Echo Of Love your most recent poem?
I like your new theme/layout. I just want to make sure I’m not missing something.
Awesome! More cities should have a “feel good lane”. xoxo
True! All cities should have Feel Good Lanes! xoxo
WOW.. another Beautiful find Resa.. Wish you could find the artist and send them to the UK to teach some of our graffiti artists How its done.. 😀
Happy New Year to you Resa.. ❤
Striking and beautiful, this is some incredible art! I love that it’s by @fartsypotts, made me chuckle. x
Feel good and pensive; a wonderful tribute.
I’ll post more of the alley as time goes by. There’s lots of lovely art in it, including some sweet, naive pieces around a children’s park.
I’ll make a post about the park, and the art around it.
Very nice photos too.
Thank you, Bumba!
Beautiful and the eyes are radiant of beauty.
I agree! This is a beautiful piece of art!
It truly is…the colors bring out more of the eyes. Beautiful…just beautiful. 🙂
Feel Good has great friends…
Yeah, but he died young!
Too young. So sad.
So cute! I love the color palette.
