Boris and I arrived in Toronto yesterday afternoon and I already feel like I’ve taken in plenty of interesting art. There is so much more street art here than in Vancouver, and it thrills me to see it wherever we go.
Last night I read about Crowded Kingdom, a show of work by a street artist who goes by the name of Anser. We dropped by to see the show at Hashtag Gallery this afternoon as we were out wandering the cold streets. I really loved the show, and wish one of the small pieces in my price range was still available to buy. Almost all of them were sold out.
Some of the faces are drawn with one continuous line, like the one pictured below. The line work is beautiful and intricate. I could probably stare it at for hours.
On another note, I’m curious to see how many other small storefront galleries like Hashtag are thriving and selling work on the streets of Toronto.
