Good street art in the suburbs: it does exist!

FIELD NOTES: If you want to see great street art in Toronto, going to Kensington Market or Graffiti Alley is always a safe bet. Chances are, in fact, if you stroll anywhere in the downtown core you’ll find something pretty great. Street artists and street-art enthusiasts tend to neglect the suburbs where, presumably, street art appreciation is less enthusiastic and pieces are likely to be removed faster. So it’s really nice to see a series in North York. Maybe those North Yorkers will like these delightful characters so much they’ll decide to keep them.

Once a week, Vandalist features some of the most interesting street art and graffiti from around Toronto. Find something great? Email vandalist@torontoist.com.

    You can definitely find great street art in the suburbs. I’ve discovered lots while walking around for my blog the Toronto Neighbourhood Walks Project. The West Hill post (http://wp.me/p1GvQS-8F) has some particularly good examples.

    This is my neighbourhood, and I love this street art! I see it when I go for walks, and I always enjoy it.
