I adore this style of street art: retro and modern all at once.

The Artist: painting is unsigned. My guess is Art Child.
It wasn’t always this glamorous out here in the alley.
“Destination Mammal Cabana” was a quirky mural. I adored it & walked by it almost every day. Click on the pic to visit the post I did 4 years ago. It’s now in RIP
Then, recently one morning, I walked through the alley and saw:
It was hideous.
Graffiti Art had been obliterated by graffiti throw-ups and tags.
Using Fairy Power, I got word of the devastation out to the street artists.
Soon after, on Easter Morning, I saw this:
It was like a dream come true!
So, I put on a clear plastic garment bag and a gorgeous 10 year old Vera Wang wedding gown. I hightailed it back down to the alley,
… whereupon Tensoe painted me,
… while I took in all the new art.
It had been decided by the artists that they would do predominately Graf Writing, as a means to keep the destroyers away.
⭐ Sherrie, there’s a rat in this slideshow for you! At least I think it’s a rat. Lol, last rat turned out to be a squirrel.
After I was finished, I was named Tenesa, and had my picture taken with all the Graf Writing and pieces.
♫ ♫ I feel pretty, oh so pretty ♫ ♫
Best time I’ve had since New Years!
Not sure how this happened? There was only 1 pic like this.
Oh no, it’s time to go! Sniff!

I would like to take a ⭐ fairy moment ⭐ here to thank Brenda Davis Harsham. Her blog, Friendly Fairytales is absolutely wonderful. It’s as though Brenda got lost in the woods, as a child, then was found and raised by fairies.
I’d like to add that Brenda’s fairy knowledge of all lands magic gave me the idea for the title, and a centered concept for this post. In my heart I feel she is the “Redemption Wall Fairy”.
The Gown Artist:
This pretty toucan is found on a side street near Bloor & Dufferin.
Oddly enough, although it’s totally different from my post https://graffitiluxandmurals.com/2015/12/26/toucan/ found in a kids’ park, I did find them on the same day.
This one has a very colorful beak.
I thought it was appropriate for “Kids” Month”

Although not signed, I suspect Nick Sweetman is the artist.
Between you & me, I’m terrified!
See what I mean! They’re giant termites. Or, are they ants?
Just checking! After all, I thought a snake was a lizard & storks were seagulls.
Whatever they are, they are all over my home!
Nowhere is safe!
See what I mean!
No artist signature.

The Cameron House is a long lived, & long loved Toronto bar & home to all artists.
On a storage container between the Sorauren Market & ice rink,
there’s this fab Anser Graf.
The sun was very low on my right. This is one end of the container.
The sun is behind the container here, & it was only -3C, approx 28F
This artist is turning an art exercise into his brand.
At the 2nd end, the shadows from the rods to open & close the container create bar shadows. It looks like this face is in jail.
The final side has a frost fence running alongside, about 1 meter separates the container & fence. It creates a veil-like shadow.
On the other side of the fence.

Sherrie captured this fierce Pharaoh in Halifax.
I captured this terrifying tiger in Toronto.
You will notice they both have stripes!
You will notice they both head up a graf writing bit!
We sure make a great team!

In a monster parking lot with scads of Graf Writing by many fabulous artists.
That reflect in the cars like fireworks.

The X beauty makes an appearance!
