Graffiti Alley – a photo essay.

On November 12, 2014 by finlay.matheson

Graffiti Alley is the mecca of Toronto street art.

Spread over around a kilometer of brick, garage door, AC vent and fire escape, Rush Lane (to give it its Sunday name) hosts some of the best graffiti in the city. The alley is located parallel to Queen St. West and Richmond St. West, and between Bathurst and Spadina. It’s where you can find everything from intricate little tags and phrases, to vast pieces taking up three stories and whole buildings.

When you peruse Graffiti Alley, make sure you look in every doorway and at every electricity box to catch some hidden gems, and don’t forget to look up every now and then as you wonder “How did they get up there!?”.
