Photos: Street art Toronto-style

So dear reader, I’m currently in the wonderful city of Toronto (full post about my adventures on the way!) This morning I strolled through the streets of Chinatown and Kensington Market  (favourite place in the city so far) and it was pretty hard not to notice that street art and graffiti is a big thing in this city. And I don’t mean someone scrawling “John” on a wall in black ink – I mean proper, attention-grabbing, brighten-up-the-seediest-alley street art. I’m sure I haven’t seen half the good stuff but anyway, here’s what caught my eye:

PS: if you like what you see, you can actually do a tour of the city’s street art with Tour Guys, a company who offer walking tours of the city with enthusiastic guides who know their stuff. They also do a beer tour which is – shock horror! – their most popular tour. Check ’em out if you’re in Toronto!
