Covering the exterior walls of a small empty building on the corner of Charlotte and Adelaide West is a collection of images.  This project, Paste Platz, is the work of Jeremy Lynch.  He asked some instagram users (artists, graffiti artists, photographers, etc ) if they wanted to contribute images.  He then printed pictures the pictures and created the scene you see below.   I haven’t tried to identify which pieces were provided by which artist; instead, I have made a list of the contributors at the bottom of this post along with a link to their instagram pages.  If you have been following this blog, you will recognize some of the street art.  But a lot of it should be new!
