Emily May Rose Aerosol Mural with her collaboration art partner. Toronto street art graffiti project in Annex with garage doors being painted
Toronto Street Art Collaboration
This weekend I got to talk to Emily Mae Rose @emilymayrose twice actually ! Once on Saturday and again on Sunday. Plus, I got to meet her boyfriend 💕 Very nice couple !
She does a lot of work with racoons featured in her artwork. I’ve noticed a few of her murals around town. I actually saw her last year when she was working on another mural beside a train track. I didn’t say hello last year as she was on some scaffolding and looked pretty busy.
This weekend she was working on a laneway project that was organized by @missladyoops.
I’ve only been to 2 of these now… but they are a great idea. The artists paint in an alleyway over a few days. Its sort of like a party without a dj. Its very informal and people go by and take pictures and basically hang out.. like a block party.
All the artists were very polite and answered all my dumb questions. I’ve noticed that the artists are able to work and talk at them same time. When I went by there were lots and lots of people doing the same thing as me. Taking pictures and asking questions. Not sure that I would be as patient as they were – but they all made the time. So thanks so much to everyone !
This is a collaboration of their two styles on a garage door. His in on the right hand side and its a dedication to Alex Scaner @mrcan_do who passed away weekend before last. So sad when someone is gone too soon.
