WELCOME TO CABBAGETOWN

Seemingly a community sponsored mural, this new beauty is found in the parking lot of the LCBO

I love that they paint this beautiful mural, then put up the LCBO sign and parking signs.

I wish they’d paint the wall in the parking lot of the LCBO in my hood! It’s about 3 times as long. It gets the worst throw-ups & tags every night.

Then, they uselessly whitewash over said tags every morning. The wall looks just as bad with all the blotchy white wash bits, as it does with the tags.

High On Birdo

I’ve been a big fan of Birdo for 4 years.

Artist: Birdo

I’ve got at least 10 garage doors and other pieces I haven’t posted, yet.

Artist: Birdo

However, this mural is really something special, as it is 5 stories high.

Artist: Birdo

It is in a parking lot in the business area, so the only day for capturing it was Sunday. I don’t like getting up early on Sunday, but I did for this.

Ukulele Lady

On a minimal find graf hunt day, I came across this mural.

Artists: Tikay & Aner

It was in the process of being painted.

Artists: Tikay & Aner

I met the artists.They spoke broken English. I spoke broken Spanish.

Artists: Tikay & Aner

Despite the language differences, I learned that the artists were working with youths who had lost one or both parents to drug addiction.

Artists: Tikay & Aner

I went back 6 days later to photograph the result.

Artists: Tikay & Aner

The ukulele originated in Hawaii. It is related to several Portuguese instruments, in particular the machete and the rajão.
