Running In The Laneway

I stumbled upon a new (to me) laneway, just off Ossington Ave, last week which is lined with murals as the result of a beautification project but I have the feeling that this mural existed before the project. I had no luck finding the artist's name on this one. It's wonderful how they have wrapped the work around the corners of this doorway giving the runner a real sense of movement and a 3-D aspect to the work!

It takes talent to make a mural wrap around a corner!

This is a cool find. Really creative and almost a trompe l'oeuil! :)

That is a unique style

This reminds of those chalk artists who work in 3-D. Love it. That runner really is moving!

There's a nice mural of the same style at the place I took the tourist shot, now I regret I didn't take one picture of it!
Cool work! ;-)

It certainly does convey the concept of speed. Nice one.

Love the sense of speed and the shazam quality to the mural. Lucky find. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

Too bad the artist never left a name on the mural. They deserve recognition.

Sharon said...
