Wandering downtown streets – Graffiti Alley

March 8

It is finally getting warmer in Toronto after this extremely cold winter. Don’t get me wrong, I am very used to winters here but THIS winter was just too much. February was filled with extreme cold weather alerts, week after week. Now that spring is around the corner, it feels like the perfect time to blog about exploring Toronto street art in Graffiti Alley. These are a few alleys located around 513 Queen Street W. on Rush Lane.

Yes, that is me taking in all that street art. Well, to be honest, in that moment I was focusing on a perfect pose for a picture and out of many takes, finally got the perfect picture :). In all seriousness, if you look hard enough, there are some pretty insightful messages of truth in each of these art pieces. This graffiti above seems to be of reminiscence. Reminiscing of all the times that are now missed. Same as there are times now that we will be missing in the future. (So be grateful, and live in the present)

The great thing about this place is, that graffiti is always changing. So each year you come by or even in a few months time, there is always something new and different. So for all you art lovers or even graffiti artists, this is definitely a great place to come by. It definitely got my creative juices flowing. Best of all it is free of charge and great for some good photography.
