This is Uber 5000. I’m in the lift taking pics. I have a better one, but I’m saving it for when I do the actual post of the mural, which was in progress.
When Uber invited me up & in, I was thrilled beyond words. Then he said, “let’s see how high this goes!” WOW! We went up to the fourth story. There was some art I had only ever seen a sliver of from the ground.
Then he told me UV lights had been installed over his mural. That was why some of the colors seemed stronger than usual. This mural will glow in the dark. There are 2 more day-glow murals being installed in the city, and I know where they are.
I knew I had to leave him to his work. I snapped a few more new bits in Graffiti Alley on my way out, including Dr. Evil.
I felt blessed!
Pics taken by Resa – February 17, 2017
When I visited Uber 5000 website, I realized he had done a Jimi Hendrix mural I had covered. Click on Jimi’s pic to visit the post.
I will be updating the post, as I did not know who the artist was at that time. I will also be adding an Uber 5000 page to the “Artists” pages.
Never in my widest dreams did I think I would get to capture the above piece. Thank you, Uber 5000!
“Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018 & ends on February 4, 2019.”
“So, let me introduce this stunning white graffiti dog I met in Graffiti Alley in Toronto.”
“Ah, beauty, thy name is dog! Did I mention dogs LOVE to go to the park with their humans.”
“Many Graffiti dogs, like this St. Bernard, live in the alleys.”
“Some like me, are rescue dogs. (Thank you mommy! ❤️🎵❤️.) The poor little thing below was rescued by Resa’s friend. Buddy was kept in 1 room, never had baths, never went to the park & lived in his own filth.”
“Buddy lives with Resa’s friend now. He goes to the park, gets baths & love.”
‘There is no Year Of The Human. When I see dogs like Buddy (and me before Marina found me) I know why.”
“However, I do wish there was The Year of the Mommies and Daddies Who Love Dogs, Mommies like Marina….. & Belén, where as you can see, there is no shortage of love.”
“Some dogs bay at the moon, even if they are painted & live in the alley.”
“Many graffiti dogs have gone into modelling and advertising.”
“Did I mention dogs like to go to the park?”
“Before I forget, I’d like to show you more pics of Ruty and Clay. Some are from when they were puppies.”
“So, While I’m being a good Hera waiting for Marina to take me to the park,”
