Vandalist: On the Origin of Graffiti

For this week's Vandalist, we've selected Darwin. Naturally.

FIELD NOTES: It’s been a little over a year since Darwin the IKEA monkey made his way into our headlines and hearts. The story seems to finally be wrapping up now, with Darwin comfortably settled into the Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary and his (ex) “mom” being ordered to reimburse thousands of dollars in legal costs to said sanctuary. One question still remains, though: What happened to Darwin’s luxurious jacket?

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 still get your very own Darwin window decal and have him peering out your window at ikeamonkey.ca.
