Street Collage


I found this unusual piece of street art on a boarded-up window just off Ossington Ave. Someone has spent hours gathering images (including one of JKF) and small items like dominoes, buttons, dice, fake money, etc and then assembling it all into this collage. Not sure what it means but it was rather intriguing to explore the various little vignettes!

I like when objects are included in the collage, it's fun to discover all of them. ;-)

Quite an interesting piece. At least it makes for a good conversation starter!

I have a few online friends that are in to collage art, they will probably like this. I can't remember seeing anything like this before.

Very interesting. Do you think it's the work of one person, or more than one?
And we'll probably never know why. Intriguing.

I searched for JFK but didn't find it but did spot the Ben Franklins. I can't imagine those are real and on this wall.

Regina - JFK is in the middle of the bottom row.

Absolutely fascinating. Would love to know the story behind it. I am sure it has made many a mind ponder.

How intriguing Red, come on you're the intrepid adventurer, see what you can find out!! I'm going to find some time this week Red to do the photo thing you nominated me for or is it WAY too late!

Have always enjoyed pondering collages.

I guess it wouldn't last long if it was here. How very interesting!

I wonder what the fate of it will be in the winter weather.

I'd like to know the meaning behind this. For sure someone is trying to communicate something.
