Sackville Street, just south of Dundas, is right in the midst of the Regent Park renewal project.  It is also the site of two murals.  First, there is bright and colourful mural which is painted on the side of a new apartment building.

    Elicser is a regular on Regent Park hoardings, & where you see him, you often see Shalak (as in your first shots) and often Smoky with Fija with her as well. I love their work!
