This last summer when I was in Toronto, I made it a point to check out Graffiti Alley. Graffiti Alley is the nickname for Rush lane and the part of Toronto that runs from Spadina Ave to Portland street and all in between.
I met up with Alex from Crazy Sexy Fun Traveler early on in the day and we grabbed some fruit smoothies and went for a little stroll in the area.
At this point I had already been in Toronto a few days. I was staying at the HI Toronto hostel and from that part of the city I had easily noticed that there was a great art scene. I met up with some couch surfers at a different part of the city and the entire longboard journey there I was coming across art, random happenings on the street, and people who had a style all of their own.
Expecting a lot based on word of mouth, Graffiti Alley did not disappoint. The spiderweb work of art weaving between alleys and around corners had me and Alex snapping pictures and enjoying our adventure exploring the scene.
Here are 10 pictures of Toronto’s Graffiti Alley
This car was not only painted but filled with soil and had plants and grasses growing out of it.
I was really diggin on this Buddha painting.
These are just a fraction of the pictures I took. The place is loaded with art and the Kensington Market, a street over, is another art filled place with unique shops everywhere.
It’s definitely worth checking out if you ever make plans to head to Toronto.
Have you ever been to any graffiti and art filled cities?
