Elicser Elliott aka Jabari Featured Artist

Movember Mural

Elicser Elliott Street Artist

From Wiki:

Elliot’s most notable works can be described as a highly improvised collage of soft characters and organic shapes, layered and blended through transparencies. His character work is often mediated by past experiences and relationships while also drawing on the likeness of passers-by to complete his community-based murals.

In 2011 Elliot met with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to advocate for the significance and vibrance of graffiti murals as public art. At the time Councillor Cesar Palacio had advocated for more street art as part of combatting blighted urban communities.

I haven’t figured out how best to do this. Because an artist like Elicser has so many murals one post wouldn’t cover a small portion of his art. I might break these into many posts instead of adding to this one. I’ll figure it out.

I’ll start with these for now.

Retirement Home Murals

Elicser Elliott along with Sight (who goes by scieter on Instagram) painted this retirement home just last year.

Underpass Park Column Street Art

Even though many of these columns were done back in 2015 I just discovered them last December. Several street artist painted a pillar under the freeway. There is a skatepark in this spot.

Elicser Elliott’s pillar was way at the back but it definitely stood out.

Graffiti Alley Artwork

I heard that Elicser Elliott lives in this neighbourhood which is why there are so many murals by him in Graffiti Alley. I could probably just do a single post with all of his art in this area.

Magic Building Street Art

This building has always been called ‘The Magic Building’. I worked across the street.. I think there were a lot of creative arts companies in that spot.

Elicser Elliott painted the side of the building.

And he painted the traffic signal box across the street in the place that I actually worked.

Sneaky Dees Doorway Mural

Elicser Elliott does some hidden treasures like this one. Only the people that walk in the back alley would even know this exists. I have found several of his easter eggs all over the city.

Elliott helped recreate costumes for the local carnival his father was heavily involved in. Upon his family's return to Canada, Elliott was introduced to street art while studying at the Etobicoke School of the Arts." . . This mural was for the Movember @Movember campaign of 2013 – From the Wiki: Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, "mo",[1] and "November") is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.[ . . .
