The Faces of Toronto
A Photo-Journal Of Graffiti Along Queen St.
Ever since I wrote that post about Toronto Graffiti and Street Art, more specifically Graffiti Alley my appreciation for Toronto Graffiti got much deeper. So when Fred from BombingScience.com sent me a bunch of pictures from his rented bike tour of all the alleys along Queen W. & Queen E., (including Chinatown, Kensington Market & Parkdale). I was more than happy to put together a post that showcased all his amazing finds.
Eyes. The Windows Of The Soul.
Facial features are very intriguing. I came across a Live Science article called Smile Secrets: 5 Things Your Grin Reveals About You It talked about what type of smiles can reveal about an individual. Everything from being fertile and whether a marriage will last to determining your earning power and how strong a fighter you may be.
Since all the pictures Fred sent me were faces, I was interested to see if I would be able to read the stories behind the faces that make up some of the beautiful Toronto graffiti.
Separating Tagging From Street Art
I know graffiti is not for everyone but I think once you begin separating tagging from street art you start to reveal a culture of work that is at times can rival pieces of art found in a gallery.
Skip the wine, cheese, and cured meat spreads and substitute it with beer, nuts, and chips.
Come as you are and admire the works of art.
Now if the government can only all use to enjoy a beer in the streets.
Using the latest travel apps, technology, and gear, I take a city; see the sights, taste the food, smell the roses, hear the stories and feel the love. All in 48 hours. Then, using videography & editing, photography and writing I retell and share those stories with my readers and viewers.
