Bloor Life

While this building on Bloor St is being renovated it has been boarded up and the artist Elicser was commissioned to decorate it with a mural. He has titled it Bloor Life and it is quite suitable with the images of the 3 old guys on a bench watching the world go by. And doesn't that fellow passing by fit in perfectly!
Taking part in Monday Murals. Click HERE for more murals from around the world.

Great timing, here, Pat. That guy would nicely on the end of the bench. Reminds me of the Cuban community in Miami where old men sit and play games all day long.

I like it a lot Pat.. but it brings home the transient nature of street art, sometimes it's not around for too long..

Sharon Anck said...

He certainly does! I love that a boarded up building is decorated with a mural. I wish that happened here.

Randy said...

It's almost like the gentleman fits in with the mural.

Stephanie said...

The fellow fits in quite well with the mural.

Linda said...

I like how you captured him in profile but he's not blocking the faces on the mural.

William Kendall said...

He certainly does fit in.

What a great idea to fill it up with a mural. And a nice one!

Very nice one, Pat. Did you have to wait long for him to walk into the frame? I recognize the artist's style. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
