Another highlight of my visit to Toronto was seeing how dramatically the street art scene has grown. There was interesting graffiti to be seen everywhere, and I got in the habit of peering down every alley I passed while walking around. Chances were good I would see something I liked.

There are large concentrations of street art in Graffiti Alley, which runs parallel to Queen from about Spadina to Portland, as well as throughout Kensington Market. But everywhere I walked, no matter the neighbourhood, I found something. These are some of the highlights.

I would dearly love to see the Vancouver street art scene grow and thrive on a similar scale. I wonder what needs to be done to make it happen…?
