Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural

June 2019 - Toronto ON

Graffiti Alley is always changing. Click on "Graffiti Alley" in the labels section below this post for lots more murals in the alley.

I couldn't find names of artists on these.

This reminds me of Emily May Rose.

Tony Tuan Luong - looks very new.

I also learned some new street art terms this week.

Wheatpaste is a homemade concoction used for putting up posters. It's relatively cheap and easy to make—a simple combination of flour, sugar, and water—and can be created in large quantities. Posters which have been put up with wheatpaste are referred to as wheatpastes.

Sticker tags and sticker art have been around for a long time but they’re so ubiquitous that people stop noticing them. They’re often on newspaper boxes, the backs of street signs, light poles, utility boxes, bar and club bathrooms, toll plazas, bus shelters– anywhere you can stick something and have it seen. Sticker tags are a form of graffiti, street art, and sometimes commercial advertising.


  1. Great collection from Graffiti alley Jackie. Love the top 3. Thanks for participating.

  2. You have found some incredible beauties. You have also found some that appear to be nothing more than graffiti dressed up as art. I admit they all serve a purpose and I enjoyed each and every one. Wheatpastes. New word to me.

  3. That's a great collection.
    Nice to see so much street art. Graffiti Alley sounds very inviting. :)

  4. Garish comes to mind with a lot of it.

  5. The first one reminds me of a soldier, somehow.
    I love the second, so much positivity! The girl is pretty done, too.
    And the lion, aww. The "nerd" is also interesting, as the sprayer, aw, they´re all great!

    Yes, it could be easy to avoid aggressive chemicals, yet...
