She’s on the side of a small gallery in Bloor West Village.

Chris Perez has taken his floral art, to street art rendering perfection.
Here are 4 different garage doors, with a close-up or 2 before the full pic.

The Artist: (In order of appearance)
I mean how much more paint until the walls from each side touch?
Paint over paint, some neat, some not.
Below, is a beautiful face I posted November 2017. I call her “Blue Eyes”. Check her out! Just another piece to move to R.I.P. I guess the artist with the red and white paint knows their paint is better.
Sometimes the artists paint over all the tags and throw ups with black, then do fresh art on top.
Many of the artists who paint & write here are very talented.

Graffiti Alley is a bit of a misnomer. It’s actually a series of alleys and lanes, that go for longer than most can walk. I only shot a few pics of it, so you could get an idea.
Some of the more amazing writing survives time.
Most of this will all be rewritten, tagged or adorned with fresh throw ups in a week.
Love the RatFink by the trash! He’s going to live on for a bit.
I keep hoping for a major rework of this wall below.
From the sublime to the ridiculous, ALL are allowed a visual voice in Graffiti Alley. Art here comes in the form of tags, throw ups, bits, pieces, writing and all out seriousness.
I discovered Graffiti Alley in 2012. This is one of the first pieces I shot, a stunning face by Jarus, and SKAM writing, together.
She was my first header, ever. This work still survives, as does a few Uber 5000 works. There is at least 1 other that I can think of.

Many of the street artists I’ve come to love are always repped in Graffiti Alley.
The Artists: SKAM
There’s more for another time!
This is a tiger kitten who grew into a bigger tiger.
The Chinese “Lucky Kitty”!
I thought, “Yay, cats!” and thought of Georgiann when I found this.
Ooo, the cats side by side. That’s very lucky!
Then, there’s a lucky Panda. I love Pandas.
OMG! A lucky dragon!
Working my way back to capture the 3 writings.
A very lucky mural, all in all! (It blows up a bit if clicked)

It was a very tasty day in Graffiti Alley.
Of course this is not Uber 5000. It is Doctor Evil.
However, he must have had something very tasty.
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!

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.
