Chicks, Beers & Cheers

Aquileana commented how cute the chicks toasting with beers on “More Paint” post are, and she’s right! They are adorable.

I made the mistake of going on a Sunday. The alley was filled with tourists, all taking pictures. 

I had a hard time focusing on my shots, especially waiting for no one to be walking by.

Uber has done a piece promoting St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. It is a wonderful Canadian city on the Atlantic coast.

Uber 5000’s chicks & other animated characters are very popular there & here.

You can see there is an entirely different Uber chicks mural around the corner. That’s still coming, a few posts from now.

Cheers to Aquileana, and all!

Blown Away

This alley has been painted over, except for a wee piece of the guy in the chair.

Lol, this guy, in his chair with wind blowing his hair, makes me think of Lonely Author

Love the part face in his tie/scarf that’s blowing in the wind.

There’s more that’s new.

There’s a kind of Mondrian-esque grid work with partial coloured faces and B&W faces.

It’s kind of Boho & sophisticated at the same time.

The other side of the alley has new writing…fresh and gorgeous. Below, I attempted to capture the alley in full.

The Artists: Not sure. If you can read the writings, that’s the artists

As for the rest: I found this left of theMondrian-esque  bit.

This was a thrilling find!


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.

The Band Played On

Although this mural s only 2 months old, it has been fouled with throw-ups.

Fortunately the t-ups are along the bottom, & I was still able to capture the best parts.

I’m working this mural right to left.

Below is a Pano shot, which shows some of the damage at the bottom. Any further back, and trees get in the way.

Although somewhat obscured by trees, below is a far shot that shows the full extent of the fouling


Three Sides of India

It’s on 3 sides of a garage.

I start with the face, because I adore it.

Love the reflection!

 Below is actually the first side I saw, as I walked up the alley.

I could have breached the fence, but it wasn’t necessary.

The face and Taj Mahal were on the garage door end. There was a car parked, and I couldn’t get in between.

However, I got this wonderful Taj Mahal reflection in the car.

You can see a wisp of the girl’s head scarf on the left.

The third side is gorgeous.

I managed to take the entire mural from across the street. I left the photo file large, so if you click on, it blows up beautifully.
