RAT or Possum or?

Used to be there were lots of rat and skull art in the alleys.

They have gone out of style. Recently skulls are popping up here and there.

I found my first rat in Graffiti Gallery in Winnipeg, when my niece Sherrie was driving me around muralling.

It was near Hallowe’en. The rat was on a pumpkin. I vowed to dedicate all rat posts to her.

Thrilled, I sent her a pic of this rat, immediately! Her hubs said Possum.

I dedicate this post to Sherrie, just in case it’s a rat!

The Rat? Artist:

With help from:

BSM = Body Soul & Mind. (I’ve met him a few times)

IBC – I don’t know.

The writing Artist- InSight (I can read it! He’s been around awhile)

Purple Faze

I finally made my way to Graffiti Alley, as my ankle is mostly better.

We are in a Stay At Home Order, so there was not a lot of new art. We are allowed to go for walks. This was a 2.5 hour walk.

This piece of art is new!

It’s paint over paint, paint beside paint and paint to go with someone else’s paint.

So, I don’t know who did this when.

 The artist who painted the face, may or may not be who painted the words.

Graffiti Alley is a shrinking network of lanes and alleys in the Queen West area. It’s shrinking to make way for development.

I’ve had some great times here.

I found Gigi in another alley on the way home! Love you, Gi! You deserve to be part of all this sweet and gorgeous alley art!

Face w/ Cat Bonus

I liked this a lot when I found it in Kensington Market.

It fell into the un-posted hoards in my photos archives.

Due to the lockdown, I haven’t been able to leave my extended hood for over a year.

Holly – House of Heart suggested I comb my photos stash. I found about 50 pieces. Thank you, dahling!

CAT BONUS

This cat has been on top of the world, ever since I can remember. It’s on the way out of Kensington Market, on Dundas West.

Hopefully the stash will help until some more art pops up in my walking zone.

Beauty in Blue

I quite like this blue face. 

I found it in a laneway that had been converted into a restaurant’s patio.

The artist: One of those names below. It is from a long wall, and many artists painted on it.

Apologies for certain ill alignments. This art was small and right off the sidewalk.

Lightening Eyes

When it is strikes close to home, lightening can be dangerous, terrifying.

Powerful enough for your heart to skip beats

Blinding

Numbing

Incongruous with the morning’s sunshine

… and we all know what comes after lightening

THUNDER
