Timmy Drift Aerosol Mural Wall Artwork

Timmy Drift Mural

February Urban Street Art Exploration

Winter blues time of the year. Mural season won’t start for at least a month so it’s time to check out the murals that have been around for awhile. There’s a few that have been fixed up – removing the tags and basica upkeep.

Timmy Drift Mural

I always seem to find a Timmy Drift mural after a fresh snowfall.. the snowdrifts really pop up his great colors !

I didn’t realize this until I read his Instagram post.. and I will quote him: “Working on updating this wall I originally painted back in 2014, which was holding up alright until a pyro lit a car on fire and burnt it down to the original bricks πŸš—πŸ”₯”

That’s got to be a first for a mural !

I think the character on the right is by Timmy as well.

Took a tour down Croft street which is kinda like a mini-graffiti alley.

Jon McTavish Bell Box Mural

This Bell Box by Jon McTavish is nearby the Light UP Laneway Project. He describes himself as “Graphic Designer and Artist. World traveler. Snow/wake junkie. Climber & adventure seeker.” on his Instagram.

Raoul Olou Garage Door Mural

This garage door mural by Raoul Olou was apart of the Light Up Laneway in 2018. In the summertime ivy covers up the artwork so it’s best to see in the winter months.

Raoul has a couple of great time lapse videos of his progress.

Raoul Olou is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto, whose work focuses on home, belonging and archiving the mundane.

Recently, Olou was selected by the Akin Studio Program as one of 30 artists to move their studios into the newly opened Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto. He also participated in charity auctions including Art with Heart to support HIV care.

Dundas West Bia Mural

This mural on Dundas West gets tagged a lot. At the beginning of January the team at Dundas West Museum repaired it and made it even better.

LoveBot Robot Mural

Another mural that gets tagged a lot is this one by LoveBot. There’s a new dedication on the left hand side. “Painted in loveing memory of Matt Kirby and Keith Haring.”

I think that Matt was a friend of LoveBot and Matt was a fan of Keith Haring.

Keith Allen Haring (May 4, 1958 – February 16, 1990) was an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City street culture of the 1980s
