Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural

June 2020 - Toronto ON

I am posting this early due to the relevancy.

Graffiti Alley has been transformed by Toronto artists supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

In an initiative called "Paint the City Black," over 40 artists from the GTA and Montreal converged in Graffiti Alley on Saturday to cover the area well known for its murals with images supporting Black Lives Matter.

Subjects of the murals include a panther curled around a globe with the Civil Rights slogan "All Power to the People," as well as Regis Korchinski-Paquet, George Floyd, Martin Luther King Jr. and Breonna Taylor.

"Communities thrive when people come together," said Jessey Pacho, a Toronto graffiti artist who organized the "call to artists" on Saturday.


Korchinski-Paquet's death falling from a balcony in Toronto's High Park neighbourhood while she was alone with police is under investigation, and Floyd died after an officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis.

'Jamal Francique.'

Another mural contains the names of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man who was fatally shot while jogging in Georgia, and Douglas Lewis, an unarmed Black man who was shot by a white man during a traffic altercation in St. Paul.

Breonna Taylor

Construction workers had moved the board to get into the job site.

Uber5000's mural has been modified.


  1. ...fabulous, Jackie you are staying more current than I am. I have a recycled mural today, but nothing new.

  2. Great work by all. Sadly it will still be relevant on Monday and for a long time to come.

  3. It is amazing how quickly street art can be updated to reflect current events! Some of these are amazing!

  4. All great works of art reflecting the current and very sad events.
    Thanks for participating Jackie.

  5. Sorry I missed these earlier. They are all quite relevant and several were quite moving and poignant.
