Graffiti Alley Toronto, Canada, 2024[open in full screen]  

 
  < Previous Trinity Square, Toronto, Canada

Graffiti Alley is popular lane in the western part of the city of Toronto. It is one of most attractive tourists spot. It is quite hard to find parking in the area. We made an effort to actually drive true. We were lucky to have no problems at all, it is still not recommended.

We walked only first third of the whole alley.

  It is 400 m long between Portland Street, Augusta Avenue, McDougal Lane and Spadina Avenue parallel to Queen Street West and Richmond Street West.

Excellent open-air gallery for the screaming young graffiti artists jumping to the opportunity to express themselves and contribute to the urban art scene. The urban language used is loud and clear, but in order to interpret the messages we need a lot of patience and enthusiasm.

  We visited this space many times recording our impressions in 2005, 2013, 2017 and yesterday, on May 27, 2024.

We are still impressed how fresh and impressive those urban artists are. Enjoy in 18 photos and only one panorama this time.
