Toronto Street Art Graffiti featuring Garage Door Murals Near School
including one with food groups plus art by Douglas Vanasselstine in Kensington Market
4 Basic Food Groups Mural
How is this — for one of the coolest garage doors ever ?
This picture is from July 11, 2016.. surprised I didn’t post it !
It’s from one of my alleyway finds.. It was near a school.. so it must have something to do with education.
I think that this is showing the 4 Basic Food Groups – which in Canada is
vegetables and fruit.
milk and alternatives.
meat and alternatives.
So between “Hey” and “Hello” I see..
1) A sandwich on the left which would be the grain products
2) A fish in the middle which would cover the meat & alternatives
3) I see a lemon and some cherries which covers vegetables and fruit
4) The piece of cheese would count for milk and alternatives !
The fish is looking at a bone.. which has a happy face.. – so eating all of these foods leads to healthy and happy bones ! I would like to know why those cherries are sitting on that piece of cheese.
Does that make any sense ? or is it just some stuff on a the side of a door ?
The signature on the right just says JSTANTONICA — that is all I know.
Yinka Dene Alliance Mural
This is a little further down from the previous artwork and it says “Right On Yinka Dene Alliance.” Which, according to Wiki is coalition of 6 First Nations from British Columbia organized to prevent the Northern Gateway Pipelins from being built through their territories.
It looks like a man wearing a baseball cap and mask. The signature is hard to read as it just says LEXR on the bottom right hand side.
197 1/2 Baldwin St Kensington
This is in the same back alley near the school. The signature on the left says “Vanasselstine -2015”. Appears to be the work of Douglas Vanasselstine.
After going through his Instagram .. I have seen a lot of his work around the city.
He has a video on Youtube with this artwork featured as well
