Classic Photos Captured February 2016

Toronto Graffiti Tumblr Page

 

I started a Tumblr blog to archive all my graffiti and street art photos. I’ve been batching them by months. I didn’t really get started about learning who was who in the street art scene until about February of 2016.. so that is where I started the Tumblr. You can see the pictures in chronological order on the Tumblr. I’m not really commenting or following back.. it’s mainly just to keep a copy of the images.

FYI.. I couldn’t include the location on some of these as I don’t remember where they were taken !

I made a quick Youtube video of the finds from that month.. and here are some of the stand outs from February of 2016.

Heidi Burkhardt Bell Box

This is one of the first Bell Boxes that I noticed. I lived a block south of this one and actually watched her painting it way back in 2011..

 

I found her website and she says this about herself

“The foundation of Heidi’s work stems from the venerable tradition of Canadian Landscape Painting. The delights of plein-air painting results in images reflecting the grand landforms, the endless variety of textures and colours of the vast North American wilderness.”

This one always reminded me of a Group of Seven painting.

Drink of the Gods Graffiti

Drink of the Gods Graffiti

This graffiti was inside an abandoned building that was being converted into a condo. I didn’t know who the artist was when I posted it more than 2 years. Somehow this artist found my posts and let me know that he was the graffiti writer.

This is by an artist who isn’t on Instagram and I can’t find any online activity. This is actually not visible when you pass down the alley. It’s really incredible when you go down the alley and discover this mural. A hidden treasure by Hemps.

I always thought this was interesting.. I don’t like pigeons very much.. but this is an interesting artwork. I have yet to find out who created this.

This is by Elicser Elliot and painted for World Pride 2014. It is on the side of a Drag Bar in the gay village. I remember watching him working on this.. but I never met him until last year.

Didn’t realize but this was done back in 2014 as well. Shepard Fairey is the artist known for Obama’s Presidential Campaign.

“The installation is called the ‘Peace Bomber’ and is part of Fairey and OBEY’s World Mural Tour where the team has installed another mural above Tattoo in Toronto.”

Clandestinos Mural

Clandestinos Mural.

This I actually discovered in March and not February.. but I will include it anyway. I ended up meeting Bruno Smoky and his wife Shalak Attack for the first time last year. I actually just saw him a week ago working on his latest mural.

🎨 by @brunosmoky 🐠 It's Mr. Smoky himself working on his latest creation. This is a new collab between himself and @peru143 . I'll post another picture of the whole mural the next time I pass by here. They said it's the first time that they were able to work together — just for fun. These guys were working out in the boiling weather last weekend. The temperature was something like 30C and closer to 40C with the humidex. This wall was facing the sun as well, so it felt even hotter than that. Just standing there for 15 minutes was uncomfortable enough, working on a ladder all day I couldn't even imagine. Dedication is the word that comes to mind ! _____________ #art #abstract #fish #urbanart #urbanexploration #aerosolart #artmural #instagraffiti #instagraff #sprayart #instaart #6ixwalks #rsa_graffiti #painting #exploretocreate #torontoart #art #mural #muralsdaily #instagraff #streetart #ig_graffiti #torontophoto #instaartist #streetartist #publicart #blogto #artgram #artstagram #sprayart
