Urban Exploration September 2019

Some recent finds from the last few days. Mural season was really busy this summer so I am catching up with everything. I still have more to check out.. but here we go

Blinc Studios Dragon Mural

🎨 Allan Bender @blinc_studios & John Nobrega @blindeye_74 & Stacey Kinder @staceykinderart 🐉

Saw this really amazing mural on Friday ..

I don’t know the whole story behind it.. but it’s pretty impressive.

The cityscape looks like it’s from the early 1900’s and the sign on the storefront on the left says “Cut Rate Drugstone”.

I didn’t watch Game of Thrones.. but they had dragons I think..

Crazy Mister Sketch Mural

I found this garage door by ‘Crazy Mister Sketch’. There was another one by Paul Jackson here a month ago.. It must of got tagged.

Urban Artist, Graffiti Writer & Explorer. Based in Innsbruck – Travelling the world.

Found this on his website:

“Painting and drawing was pretty much always my thing, so naturally when I found out that it could be done on walls, I had to try. I am an urban artist and graffiti writer from Innsbruck and I go by Sketch. I like to use elements from oldschool graffiti as well as graphic design, realism, typography, nature and comic books. After a few active years in the urban art scene, I started offering comission works in and around Innsbruck and I started to travel abroad to paint. So, with my passion for painting walls came a passion for travel, photography and exploration. Today I paint in large cities as well as in places that this artform has not yet reached – but always with style, presicion and an eye for detail.”

Crazy Mister Sketch

I found this in graffiti alley that is also by Crazy Mister Sketch.

Kate Domina Mural

I didn’t even know that Kate Domina did garage doors but here it is.

From her website:

“Kate Domina is a Toronto based figurative painter. Using children and adolescents as her subjects, she incorporates classical representational oil painting techniques with whimsical and often ambiguous narratives. Her critical theory fixation (Lacan, Freud and Jung specifically) weaves it’s way into her work, evolving her portraits into studies of human frailty, and often, neurosis. Domina has training from the University of Toronto, Sheridan College and Ontario College of Art and Design.”
