Years ago most of the walls around the city were starting to fill up with trashy graffiti of love notes, gang symbols and scribblings. This made some neighbourhoods look creepy or scary to enter. If you live in the city of Toronto, you will notice some very nice pictures beautifying neighbourhoods with graffiti wall art.
Graffiti Wall Art around Toronto
I always thought that it would be so nice to see more eye-pleasing pictures. One day they just began popping up everywhere on my travels.
The art of graffiti began probably around the earlier 2000s. One day while visiting Eglinton Flats in the Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue area, I came across all these awesome photos on the walls of the building. I began snapping pictures to capture those that were not defaced by others.
Graffiti Wall Art has become quite popular in my city. Anytime I am out and about I always seem to see some new art on the walls of buildings, walkways or parks. A reason I always have a camera with me, you never know when you might see something you like.
I am sure not everyone would consider these pictures works of art, they may still consider them graffiti and an eye sore to the neighbourhood it is in. People trying to have it removed. If owners of the buildings, parks and stores don’t mind it on their walls, why should we? I, however, enjoy seeing it on my outings and hope to see more and more.
Where ever I go, in town, out of town, province or country, I always seem to find wall art. Watch out for more!
