Throwback Thursday Street Art November 2015 P1

Street art changes the landscape. Just like the landscape … street changes as well. Sometimes street art is tagged with graffiti. Othertimes the street art was only intended to be temporary (like at a construction site). Sometimes weather changes the street art (rain, sun, cold). Sometimes the building street art was painted on was demolished.

All the street artists I’ve talked to are aware of the constantly evolving environment in which they are working. That’s part of the challenge and they all seem to take it in stride. It’s just how it is.

So with that… I was thinking off trying out something that might be a regular feature later on. Since street art changes so often it might be interesting to see how things used to look. Throwback thursday is a thing !

These pictures were all taken in November 2015.. and I’ll break it into 2 posts.

Anser Graffiti

Toronto Graffiti Street Art

This Anser face was on the wall of a Dollarama for a very long time. The same wall has a mural with a rooster on it now by Alex Bacon and Poser ABM done back in 2017.

I have no idea where I found this one. The paint was really peeling even back then.

Clandestinos Mural

So glad I got this picture back then of this Clandestinos mural. The owners of the cafe put a fence right in the middle. The street artwork is about the environment as you can tell.

This is what the Movember mural by Eliscer looked a few weeks after he finished it. It’s been tagged several times since. The tag on the right was there already and he incorporated it into his mural.
