Two new murals have appeared in Graffiti Alley and Rush Lane, both in reaction to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Putin’s Russia.  First:

mural in Rush Lane in blue and yellow, text in Cyrillic alphabet, bird, white dove with branch that is half yellow and half blue

part of a mural, white dove of peace with a branch in its claws that is half blue and half yellow representing Ukraine

crow-like bird with beak open wide as it makes noise, top part blue and bottom part yellow, for Ukraine

UPDATE: The above mural is a group effort.  The bird, a nightingale, was painted by Nick Sweetman.  That link should take you to an instagram post that describes the thinking behind the mural.  It also lists mr_tensoe2SpyOne, and TwiceBorn as the collaborators.

below: … and second, a painting that has already been scribbled on.

street art portrait of Putin in grey tones, wearing a baseball cap that says Make Russia Great Again, background is half blue and half yellow for Ukraine. It has already been scribbled on

    I am lucky to have taken a photo of the Putin piece before the scribble. By the way, there’s a new one on the northwest corner of Duncan and Queen West.
