Graffiti

Check out the photo album section, to see one of my passions, taking photos of graffiti.
I wandered down an alley off Queen west one spring day in 99, saw something that caught my eye, and I was hooked. I've found a lot of good stuff in Toronto, as well as Ottawa and Montreal. Some of it is tags, some a quick throw-up, some pieces represents hours of work. While some would take issue with where it's done, I think after looking at some of the talent shown in these images you'll have to agree that it's definitely art.
I used to have these on my previous web page, and have dates for all as well as artists for many written down somewhere- just waiting for more "spare" time to add that. In the meantime, I'm always open to suggestions on where to look - add a comment or email me.

Update - Sept 2004 -found an interesting article by Fiona Story from Carleton last year on graffiti as art.
