Vandalist: Red in the Face

The art of simplicity.

red spot

FIELD NOTES: Sometimes creating charming graffiti is as simple as adding features to a random shape. Giving eyes and a mouth to this red blotch has given function, form, and personality to an otherwise abstract burst of colour. Kudos to the artist for seeing more than a mere red spot, and kudos to the photographer for noticing something that could so easily have been overlooked.

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

    Every building and lamppost is designed by someone. Most are far, far esthetically superior to the hideous graffiti that defaces them – including this red splotch of paint.
