Frozen in stone for more than a hundred years these faces are some of those that adorn the exterior of Queens Park.  The pinkish stone is sandstone quarried near Orangeville and the Credit River Valley.

below: This one makes me think of an old woman in a frilly bonnet – my apologies to the person it is supposed to be (if there is one!).

A number of street artists have collaborated to paint an animal themed mural on a wall
that separates St. Helens Ave from a Value Village store and parking lot (near Bloor and Lansdowne).

on two sides of a concrete pillar there are paintings of people. One has two nose to nose with both arms raised to the top of the pillar such that it looks like they are holding up the upper horizontal part of the concrete support.  On the other side of the pillar is a man with bent head who looks like he is carrying the weight of the road above on his shoulders.  There are also some figures painted on the horizontal part of the support.

New faces in the alley, or at least they are new to me.   Seen yesterday.

looking down the alley, graffiti on the walls on both sides including a large woman's head by the artist Kairo.  She has curly hair and her face is about 7 feet tall.

face graffiti - a man's face on a piece of plywood.  He is balding and there is stubble on his face.  He seems to be sweating too.

sticker of eyes on a white and pink face.  The sticker is on a pole and there is an orange wall that is out of focus  behind the pole.

There is an alley that runs behind Bathurst, on the west side.  Most of these photos were taken in that alley.  All of the photos are of sticker, or paper, graffiti that I saw when I walked that alley a week or so ago.

 

A window space in a brick wall that was covered over a long time ago.  Now there are tags and stickers covering the space as well as graffiti on the walls around the space.

It used to be a window, now it is an ever changing canvas.

four stickers on a wall.  One is a mask that looks either African or BC First Nations.  One is a hairy dog like creature with a long tongue that is licking a red strawberry with legs.  One has the word 'decolonize' on it along with a picture of a group of men.  The last sticker is just the word 'phi-nite' with a symbol.
