I’m an amateur photographer who has a passion for taking pics of outdoor ephemeral art.
My name is Resa McConaghy, and my site, “Graffit Lux and Murals”, was originally dedicated to showcasing & documenting Graffiti Art and Murals in Toronto and Winnipeg.
However, I now find I am featuring the Street Art of other cities around the globe through travels of mine, and guest contributors.
Taking these pics is a passion and a joy. Each work of graffiti art or mural evokes thoughts in me, and these thoughts are reflected in the titles of my Posts.
Some of these pieces may already have been named by the artists. If I know the original name, I will name it so.
If I know the name of the artist, I will credit them under the photograph and/or in the body of the post. If you are an artist & have not been credited, you can reach me by email with your info. I will gladly update the post. If you’re here, it’s probably because you love this type of art as much as I do. I hope my pics do the pieces some justice.

Hi Resa. Fom the great posts I’ve read so far, I’m delighted to follow you! Your photos are stunning and the political and social topics they depict – and about which you write – are thought provoking and inspirational. I’m really glad to have found your blog!
Thank you! Likewise, and big blush. Lol.
I just found your blog and am enjoying the concept. Although we don’t feature murals on our blog, I have long been intriqued with them and can remember many from our travels like ones in Cortez, Colorado [our first?], Lake Placid, Florida, a small town full of them and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a huge city full of them. Last year, we did feature the murals of Joplin, Missouri.
Hello! I just found this comment! I hope you are having a wonderful long weekend! I will check out your blog & see if I can find the murals in Joplin.
All art is a way transitory – I used to build sand castles! They definitely wash away.
Very true! Jimi wrote – “And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually”
Hi Resa. Its great to meet you. Clarissa mentioned your site and we are liking it. Street art is so great. We’ll tag along with you and see the world through your eyes and words it that’s okay.

Hi Resa, how are ya? I love your blog! I, too, like to seek out street art. A mutual friend, Carolyn, mentioned you in one of her comments, and I recognized your name and blog. I thought I would mention that I have posted a few blog posts about street art in my area recently and I thought you may want to check them out! Have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you soon! Keep up the great work!
Nice, It was an interesting introduction. I may can send you some pic of my town. would you show me a way
Great idea for a blog 🙂 I really like the concept
It’s a passion! So glad you like it! See you here or on your blog!

Hey I just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog. I’m slowly working on getting all the murals here in Regina.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you! Regina is a wonderful place. I look forward to seeing the murals, pieces and bits you find.
If you have one you’d like to submit as for a guest post, that would be fab. All Guests are linked to their blogs on my side bar! Have fun, but don’t get frostbitten!
Thanks I will. If you come across anything you would like to post just ask.
Happy New Year 2018 Resa 🙂
It’s been a while but I am finally
getting back here, and actually
posting something for a change.
I have been editing my site, hmm
not as I remember it on the settings
but after a little patience, it has
been worth the effort.
Have a lovely weekend my dear 🙂

I love art, I have just started my cooking blog just hours ago.
I’m hoping to get the nerve to show my art one day. Thank you so much for your time and energy you have put into your blog.
Your photos are great , I can visit places I’ve never been. Thank you.
Congratulations to the City of the Raptor! Enjoy!!!!!
Hey Resa. A concert question. Because of their link, any objections if I combined Guess Who, Burton Cummings, and BTO (Randy Bachman)?
That is a great idea!! So much to choose from! I’m in!
Wondered your thoughts because Guess Who on their own may be difficult for some.
It all works!
There was an old song by Chad Allen and The Expressions, “Shakin’ All Over”.
The Guess Who did not have the hit with that. The song went big, and the band was offered the big American tour deal. Tragic, but at that moment, Chad Allen got nodes on his larynx, and had an operation to remove them.
While he was recovering, Burton Cummings took over vocals along with his keyboards.
Chad never recovered his voice. THEN the band was called The Guess Who. It seems history is now warped. The Guess Who get all the credit. There are many warped tales and credits, and it always irritates me to read the misinformed history. I grew up in Winnipeg. I knew all the kid sisters, brothers, etc.
(I had a few…. erm dates with Randy’s younger brother.) Anyway, it appears even history is not written in stone!
Very interesting stuff. I knew a little about Chad Allen but you added. ☺ …. A few dates with Randy’s brother? Wasn’t a brother a drummer in BTO?
Much later! 😀
Him? Randy’s bro… yes. My eventual man & him? met in Toronto at a concert. It was very interesting.
Robbie was the drummer … I actually have a pair of his used drumsticks … Tim was a guitarist. When he quit BTO, their concert at my university was postponed until they got a new guitarist.
Neat. Funny, I always though Tim played drums. Oh well!
Another small world connection. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Hi and here is my poem:
Rhinos run rampant
Runway races Rosie
‘Round the horn.
GOT IT!! Yay!
I have nominated your blog for the Sunshine Blogger Award.
More about this nomination is at
Resa, Tubularsock thanks you for the like as well as deciding to follow Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news.”
Tubularsock loves your blog and will have to spend more time looking over your work at the same time attempting to save the world one word at a time.
When you have time please return and look over Tubularsock’s photography.
You will see that Tubularsock uses only actual photos that have been taken by Tubularsock himself using a Kodak-reversible-lens-850 which shows what the photo would have looked like if the photographer had taken the photographs just moments before the original photograph was taken. Yes it is highly technical but that’s science!
Often times Tubularsock is actually in the photo hence the use of the Kodak-reversible-lens-850, which as you know being a photographer yourself the difficulty of these types of shots without a tripod.
So thanks again ………..
I’m not a real photographer, but I have developed an eye for capturing street art, and how to shoot my Art Gowns, with an IPhone.
I will check out your photos!
Well Resa, NOT being a REAL photographer is not true. Don’t underestimate what is clearly a talent you have.
Just remember as Tubularsock always says ………… “We all are making it up as we go!”
I visited your site. I read & see your art. Excellent work. I like. I am so happy. Go ahead your work. I pray to God.
