Monday Mural

One of Elicser's murals in the Queen and Bathurst Streets area of Graffiti Alley. Other than that it seems to be titled Omen, I know nothing else about it, but he seems to be a prominent and prolific artist in Toronto.  It is a shame that it has been disrespectfully tagged.


And we have a host for this Monday Mural meme. Thank you Carolyn at Oakland Daily Photo for taking the responsibility.

Oooh, evocative mural, but I'm not sure I like the face on the left. Rather ominous looking.

Please link up with the brand new Monday Mural linky. YaY!

I like the mural but I do wonder what goes through his mind when he is deciding what to paint.

It is a nicely done mural, but sad to see it defaced. I agree that sometimes, it is hard to imagine what someone was thinking - it is a little foreboding...however, I guess that "Omen" would call for that! Thanks for sharing this one!

Wow. This is a powerful image. I am always awed at what artists with paint cans can create. I hope tagging murals is not a common event. The street code here usually protects murals, but not always.

Thanks for participating in the official meme. You, Andy, and Francisca really started it on your own. Kind of a grass roots effort. I look forward to more of your finds.

I don't know; the tags seem to be respectfully added.
I will one day visit Toronto . . it is one of those maybe magical places to drift about and walk . . . maybe not?

That street art is amazing. I'm trying to get a sense of the scope of it-it looks quite large. Yes too bad for the tag-they need to figure it out.

Two intriguing faces represented in this mural! There is a sense that these personas see deep into the future! Disturbing and fascinating!

Quite an interesting mural. I do not get it, but then I am bait older that the people who are painting murals like this. About Jeff Davis, the horse. Jeff is the nick name for Jefferson...I do not know if a horse is buries there or i f it was left over from Halloween. genie
