Some of the things that I have been finding in these alleyways have been under my nose the entire time. Huh… who would have thought ..

This must look really nice in the wintertime without that ivy.. I will have to remember to check back in 6 months or so. The ivy does make for a nice effect.

This mural by Peru is just a little further down the lane from the pervious wall artwork.. It seems appropriate to post it right after.. They compliment each other nicely – terrific colors and beautiful designs.

From his personal website Peru says this:

“As a proponent of the ‘Graffuturism’ movement, much of Peru’s artistic energy today is dedicated to advancing the traditions of graffiti and mural art into new imaginative territory. The geometric complexity of his work—partially rooted, no doubt, in his early appreciation of Quechua textiles and ancient ruins—is made more readable by his simplified and saturated colour palette. For Peru, this commitment to the advancement and intermingling of graffiti and mural art is not opposed to tradition but involves, instead, an attempt to extend and enrich tradition. For Peru, artistic tradition is not a synonym for the out-dated or the unchanging. ‘Tradition’ for Peru refers to the living attempt to reflect the joy of the everyday in material works of art.

Peru currently calls Toronto ‘home’ where he lives with his beautiful wife and kids.

“Success is not the key to happiness; happiness is the key to success”.”

I still don’t know the meaning behind 143.. hopefully he will elaborate someday..

“In celebration of the launch, American Express is unveiling the Live Life Experience – a unique pop up art experience on Toronto’s Queen Street West.
