Pink Panther by GOndek Draws
Found this today by @gonekdraws. It’s the Pink Panther. From Wiki : “The Pink Panther is a fictional animated character who appeared in the opening and/or closing credit sequences of every film in the Pink Panther series except for A Shot in the Dark and Inspector Clouseau. In the storyline of the original film, “the Pink Panther” was the name of a valuable pink diamond named for a flaw that showed a “figure of a springing panther” when held up to the light in a certain way; in the credits this was translated to an animated pink panther. “. Later that character would be spun off into it’s own show as well as animated films.
I’ve seen the Pink Panther character in a lot of street art. This particular artist basically takes well known characters and puts his own spin on things. He was here last year around the same time.
Collaboration by: @gondekdraws @PaulJacksonLives I should have posted this before the ninja turtles as its next to the Mikey Mouse/Bugs Bunny mural. The framing was a little difficult on this one because of the fence right behind me here. I actually had to swing back to get a better picture. There were a bunch of aerosol artists in Toronto all from Los Angeles last weekend. It was cool to get to see some of their work all around the west end. This looks like groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons. He's eating a donut and drinking a Duff beer (I see so many people wearing the Duff Beer t-shirts). This looks like it must be from one of the Halloween specials. Its kinda a mash up as the face looks like it could be Homer and the hair looks a little like Maggie's. Its a very colorful mural. _________ #popart #art #mural #muralsdaily #instagraffiti #instagraff #graffitiart #sprayart #instaart #graff #6ixwalks #wallporn #streetartphotography #instaart #rsa_graffiti #alleyways #graffiti #graff #aerosol #streetarteverywhere #spraycan #streetart #murals #urbanart #streetart #thesimpsons #duffbeer #coolart #graffitiporn #modernart #spraypaint #spraypaintart #publicart
Collaboration 🎨 @jerryrugg @gondekdraws @PaulJacksonLives Its great 👍 when they tell you the actual location of these murals… because you can go and find it on your way home. My friend had an event in Trinity Bellwoods Park for the 50th anniversary of the "Summer of Love' and it was his mothers birthday as well. I went to see him and his kids and walked by here afterward. . Here it is. A very cool mural in a parking lot in the trendiest spot in the city. . What was great about this ….is that they actually put Traffic Cones in front of this mural so, that no cars could park in front of it.. ! . . That is so genius and very much appreciated. Makes picture taking so much better… When I was coming out of this spot.. a dad was taking his kids into the parking lot and telling them to look at all the art. _________ #popart #art #mural #muralsdaily #instagraffiti #instagraff #graffitiart #sprayart #instaart #graff #6ixwalks #wallporn #streetartphotography #instaart #rsa_graffiti #alleyways #graffiti #graff #aerosol #streetarteverywhere #spraycan #streetart #murals #urbanart #streetart #teenagemutantninjaturtles #torontoart
It looks like he was in town for a couple of other projects.. this is another Simpsons character – the Simpsons are probably the most popular of the cartoon characters in street art.
From his website: “Matt Gondek is a Los Angeles Pop Artist who paints Deconstructed Pop Icons. He was born in Pittsburgh PA, but moved to Los Angeles at the age of 31.’

Final Okudart Mural
Not sure if I posted the final Okudart Mural or not… but it is really beautiful so I will post it again – just in case. There was a lot of buzz about this mural while he was in town. Right after this, he flew to Edmonton to work on another mural.. This guy is super busy.

Shamda Panda Wheat Paste Throwups
I’m kinda excited about this — to be honest. So silly and awesome at the same time.
It’s a wheatpaste throw up that just says “Shamda” and its obviously a panda. I’ve only seen this one.. but @urbanninjasquadron DM’d me this picture. It seem to be Elvis and I think that is Divine in the fist Hairspray movie. Hopefully, there will be more of these to discover soon !
