FIELD NOTES: We know we’re in an affordable housing rut when not even Rich Uncle Pennybags can afford a home on King Street West. He’s had to resort to spinning just to make ends meet, poor fellow. That or he’s having some sort of a midlife crisis. Either way, we love it when visiting street artists leave us gifts. Thanks, Alec Monopoly!

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

    Is it real graffiti when it’s a full storey tall? No one does graffiti with ladders on a busy street.

      Of course they do. They also do it with rollers and cans on poles.
