Random Faces

These are some random faces I really like.

The sun can mess up the shot, or have an interesting effect.

The next pic is sent to us from Alex Morris.

Subism Collective (UK) – This huge mural was painted in 2011 in collaboration with Red Bull by four artists (Deus, N4t4, Philth and Ventsa) from the Derby-based digital creative agency “Subism”. This earth, wind, fire, and water-themed illustration is known as a landmark in the Northern Quarter!

It’s a fabulous mural from Manchester, U.K. Thank you, Alex!

Elicsr in Graffiti Alley.

The drawing below is from Chris Franklin. If you click on it, it will take you another quite wonderful drawing of his.

Back in the alley.

A Touch of Classic

It never ceases to amaze me that garbage bins are proudly displayed in front of fabulous street art.

It’s enough that the artists must work around poles, pipes and wires.

Another oddity is planting a bank of trees in front. I love trees, they are nature’s art, so why bother with the painting, then?

I expect to see a parking infraction sign on it, soon.

Quite the beauty!

🎨 Frida Kahlo 🎨

This is the second Frida Kahlo piece I’ve found.

I met the artist, Anya, while traversing alleys and parking lots. OMG! She was so neat. She spent time chit-chatting with me.

She said the art would be done by Thursday end. She had another art engagement on Friday. I didn’t think Anya & MSKA, who was assisting with B.G., would make the date. Wednesday rained all day.

She showed me the self portrait she was basing this mural on.

LOVE the hand/glove earrings!!!

I went back Sunday. It’s not quite finished, but I shot it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get back there.

I adore the way she has Frida emerging out of the wings of a Monarch. When I returned, dumpsters had been moved in.

I shoot them as I get them.

Girl w/ Graffiti Gardenia

I found this lovely in Kensington Market.

She’s surrounded by Graf Writing. Far right green and pink piece reads SKAM. The others are familiar, but I can’t quite read them.

Click on the above pic to better see the girl surrounded by the writing.

Black, Brick & White

A new beauty has appeared in an alley in Kensington Market.

There is no place in Toronto where Street Art is held to such a street standard, yet, this past winter in Kensington saw a throw up devastation like no other.

Very few pieces were left untouched. She is one of the survivors.

It all started on the side of a corrugated shipping container that Sherrie found in Winnipeg.
