As I was walking down Yonge Street yesterday I happened upon this, faces playing peak-a-boo with passersby on the street.  It’s a new 22 storey mural being painted on the north side of 423 Yonge Street.  A ‘musical mural’ featuring the faces of musicians from the 1950’s, 1960’s, and 1970’s.

a vertical mural painted on the side of a multi storey building, the mural is a series of faces.

below: From top to bottom: Ronnie Hawkins, Glenn Gould, Diane Brooks, Jackie Shane and Muddy Waters.

A tree with it's branches painted in rainbow colours, from left to right: red, orange, yellow, green, blue.  A man is sitting at the base of the tree, back to the viewer, in a yoga position.  Unfortunately, part of the mural has been tagged over in sea foam green DWEL.  Wintertime, snow on the ground. .
