Graffiti and street art, sometimes it stays around a while and other times it disappears, hidden by someone else’s work.   Tags and words also appear where they often shouldn’t.  When I walk an alley that I’ve seen before, I never know what to expect but there is always something to discover to make it worth a repeat visit.   So it was this morning when I found myself back at Scarfo Lane.  Back in Nov 2014 (a year and a half ago!  … time flies by!) I posted about some of the street art and murals that I saw there.   Most of it is still there.

Today’s contributions follow – at least one is new and the others I’m not sure about, I might have omitted them last time.  The whims of the day and of the photographer.

below: Blue cool nature meets red hot city, friends, joined together & working together. Mural by ‘Insect Cabaret’ which is the name that artists Aisha Ali and Andalah Ali have given to themselves and their work.

The next two are from the same garage door.

And in case you’re curious  –

    Hi! Andalah here from Insect Cabaret. Thanks for the post! If you’d like to see more of our work, we recently completed a garage mural at the intersection of Hallam St and Salem Ave, as well the sign for Volta Espresso near Bloor and Bathurst, and several traffic signal and Bell telephone boxes in the east and north ends of the city!

    Also currently on the go: another mural in Scarfo lane, and one in Seaton Village!
