Monday Mural Part 1

I'm linking up at Monday Mural

September 2019 - Toronto ON

I can't believe I just watched Exit Through the Gift Shop (a Banksy film) yesterday! It tells the story of the beginning of street art. I totally enjoyed it and would watch again. It features Mr. Brainwash who just painted a mural in Yorkville here in Toronto a few weeks ago.

Part 1 - College St at Eulcid St.

In September we took a long walk along College St, 14,000 steps in fact.
More on our day on College St. and many more murals.
This is the first of the murals we found in the lane off Eulcid, a collaborative project in 2018 and 2019.

StreetART Toronto posted all of the amazing work done by KJ Bit Collective Sep 7-8 2019 weekend at The BIT Laneway Project just south of Palmerston & Euclid. They had also painted of some these in 2018.

KJ Bit is an emerging collective who want to brighten the streets of Toronto with artwork! Members Jieun June Kim and Erika James share a common interest in community-engaged arts and we want to invite local residents and emerging artists to paint garages in Euclid laneway to deter graffiti vandalism. Jieun recently moved to Canada from South Korea, and Erika has been working in community-engaged arts for two years. Since meeting at a Mural Arts Career Development program for emerging artists/program managers in April, we’ve worked collaboratively on several projects. Our name uses the Korean word “bit” which means “brightness, gleam, illumination, and radiance” and we want to bring this “beam of light” to our vibrant city!

Meaghan Claire Kehoe (aka MCK) is an emerging full-time artist local to Oshawa, Toronto and Waterloo.
Her murals can be enjoyed in over 50 Starbucks cafés across southern Ontario as well as in other commercial and private spaces like Food Basics and Brickworks Cider House, as well as public areas such as Toronto Underpass Park, London Convention Centre, and Kitchener City Hall.

Greta Thunberg (born January 2003) is a Swedish teenager who is credited with raising global awareness of the risks posed by global warming/climate change, and with holding politicians to account for their lack of action on the climate crisis.

And Drippin Soul painted the one on the left.

Emily May Rose's latest mural. Love it. I showed another new one at Dundas Square.

Too cute, but no name.

New to me.

Wenting Li is an illustrator and inveterate reader working out of Toronto. Her work is preoccupied with colour and movement, the relationship between shapes, and the subtleties of complementing story with picture.

Oriah Scott and Anya Mielniczek o halito means breath. We'll see more of in the coming weeks.

Ren Lonechild is a Plains Cree artist from White Bear Reservation in Saskatchewan. We will see more Lonechild after this in a restaurant.

Jieun June Kim


Pam Lostracco we've seen a lot of her work around town. I still have to post some of it.

MCK Studio is also Meaghan Kehoe. The owner kindly closed his garage door so we could see this mural.

I love this photo John took.
