GRAFFITI STREET ART PAINTINGS AND OBJECTS
STREET ART GRAFFITI! In addition to working as a full time street performer in downtown Toronto (2004-08) I also spent sometime roaming the city at night doing random graffiti murals and installation projects. The daytime performances and midnight missions went really well together as I was often able to meet and discuss the works with people who’d encountered them. For the most part the graffiti muralist remains anonymous but as a full time street performer I made myself accessible taking full advantage of the public symposium for both criticisms and acclaim.
There were several versions of the mural including both male and female depictions, sequential decapitations and singular portraits but I wasn’t in the habit of taking pictures of them at the time. The images posted here were taking on Queen Street and show one of the murals as it persistently avoided commercial postering an almost unheard feet for any street mural.
