Ryerson Bike Mural


I discovered this wonderful bike mural in a laneway that runs through the campus of Ryerson University which is one of 3 universities in the city of Toronto. Running off Dundas St near Yonge St, the laneway had long been a prime target for graffiti so when Ryerson set up a secure, indoor bike parking area off the lane the decision was made to beautify with a suitable mural! I have been unable to discover the artist responsible but will keep searching for the info. This is just one part of this really long mural!

I like it very much. At the Univ. of Florida in Gainesville, they have a wall that extends about 6 blocks filled with graffiti which is constantly changing. It looks terrible! But I suppose it helps keep the so-called "artists" away from other walls. This mural at Ryerson is so much nicer!

This is quite a suitable and colorful mural. It is remarkable that Toronto has so many murals for the public to enjoy.

I like it! And even better that it keeps the taggers at bay.

Preemptive street art. I definitely like this better than many kinds of graffiti that might have been there if the university had not acted first.

I can't believe all of the murals you have in your city. I love it.

This is very colorful and makes me think of lemons, limes and oranges.

The colours remind me of Opal Fruits, or Starburst as they are now known!
