Wilderness In The Laneway

I haven't shown anything from the laneway off Ossington Ave for a while so I thought I would present this wonderful piece by artist Li-Hill. It was done during the project to put murals on most of the garages along here in an attempt to stop the tagging and so far that idea is working fairly well.I like how he has even painted the covering on the wire coming down from the left.
Taking part in Monday Murals. Click here for more murals.

Another great mural and perfect for the north country!

This mural looks like something that should be on a postage stamp for the artistic work in it.

Lowell said...

Oh wow! This is amazing. Li-Hill really created the sense of motion. Looks like a strong wind a-blowin'! And the colors are so strong. It's a fantastic piece!

Great sense of movement in this mural.

nothing is getting in the way of this charging moose, is it?!

Very cool, reminds me of the bear you can see from the subway near Dundas West.

Now that I'm back in Toronto I am going mural hunting!

I wish we had a similar project where I live.

Gorgeous, glad you pointed out that he painted the guy wire, I would have missed that - great idea to include it in the painting

Interesting concept to reduce tagging ... if it is working, that's good news.

Monarch of the Laneway? Dynamic even in a tight space. I bet this stops the pedestrian traffic in the alley. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Really dynamic, packed full of motion!

I got a kick out of your comment on Ocala. I left my hair grow until I look like a shaggy dog. So many of the old retired guys in this area head to the barber shop every week and I watch in wonder as the barber tries to find a few strands to snip off! :)

It looks great Pat, murals really have taken off in such a big way haven't they..a really good way to hide drab spots.
