Not a Dumping Ground

We are back in the Ossington Ave laneway that has undergone a transformation thanks to the city-sanctioned mural project meant to discourage mindless tagging of garages and buildings. Now all that needs to be done is to stop people from dumping garbage in the lane! The city will pick up mattresses from your streetfront for free so there is no need to dump them like this. The artists for this interesting mural are known as Lexr and Evoke and have been getting international commissions for their work. I like how they have incorporated the windows as eyes here.

This is a very colorful piece.

The minds of these artists must be made of some unique structure - how does one come up with such a design? Very cool!

Wow! A real explosion of color. I'm glad these areas are on the up and up. :)

at least we don't have to see the front of the mattress.

There's so much going on here that it makes you stare at it for some time.

Impressive mural!

Bad manners on the part of whoever dumped that mattress...

Nice mural and hopefully the mattress will soon be gone!

Maybe the mattress is commentary?

Dramatic image with lots of imbedded content. Props to Toronto for recognizing the difference between street art and graffiti. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Colourful! I'm so glad the city picks up mattresses and whatever so that MOST people will leave it at the curb rather than litter someone else's property.
