Bad Character Graffiti

College Street Art

Some recent finds all along or around College Street between Spadina and Dufferin.

Pryze Bar Graffiti

I just noticed this for the first time. It used to be a nightclub that was called ‘Pryze Bar’ and before that it was a Tibetan restaurant. It looks like the bar wasn’t around for very long.

Looks like they had some cool artwork inside.

There wasn’t any credit for this artwork so I don’t know who did it. It’s kinda neat and I like Pac Man character looking in the window. It has a Invaderwashere look to it.

SumArtist Mural

This mural is by SumArtist and he did it about a year ago. It was tagged really badly almost as soon as he did it. It’s been repaired recently but it’s still hard to get a good photograph of this. It’s in the parking lot of an auto mechanic. Cars cars cars.

BlueRoom on College Art Project

I finally found out what this all about ! There is even a website about it.

The Blue Room is the creation of a space within space. A new room is installed through an act of subtracting all that is ‘aggregated background’ by the addition of non-discriminating colour. An implied block of colour volume is conceptually placed within the parkettes. All background elements (ground, adjacent wall surfaces, mechanical equipment, fastenings, utility structures, supports, etc.) take on the colour and fade into the subtraction. As a result, the new positive space appears in its 3-dimensional implication.

“Three installations of the Blue room are all located along College Street in Toronto Ontario within the extents of the College Promenade BIA.
