Graffiti Alley

Posted on June 6, 2014 in Blog, Public Art, W Queen W

There’s the energy, the colour, the grittiness and let’s face it… a hint of badness. Graffiti has become a bona fide art form that’s always on the cutting edge. Graffiti alley is the number one “gallery space” in Toronto for street art.

Just south of the intersection of Queen and Spadina you have to look for an alley way that runs west over to Portland. Once you turn the corner you’ll find a kaleidoscope of colours and figures that continues for the next kilometre.

Fans of the Rick Mercer Report on CBC will recognize this alley as the settings for the RMR Rants. There are tours that include this area run from June to September, visit tourguys.ca

By it’s very nature graffiti and street art are ephemeral so, in theory, you could visit every day and have a different experience each time.
