Up On The Roof

This huge mural is located on College St in the Kensington Market neighbourhhod. The young guy looks so carefree up on a roof looking out over trees when he is actually in a busy part of downtown. The artist for this one is Young Jarus who has done a lot of commissioned murals around town.

I'd say this young man is "above it all," above all the commotion and craziness that goes on in the huge city called Toronto. And he certainly found a nice spot from which to view all the action! Nice find, Pat!

I remember 'Up on the Roof' by The Drifters from the 1960s. Great song, and this is a great mural, too!
Have a wonderful week!

I love the watercolor effect of this mural. That young man looks so happy to not be down below in all that traffic.
