Vandalist: Power Up

FIELD NOTES: Imagine if our streets were like Mario Kart—if while driving or cycling we could pick up power-ups that put us ahead and put our annoying fellow road-users behind. We could capture stars to make ourselves invincible (and to hear that giddy starman theme), drop banana peels to wipe out those who would pass us, or, just for kicks, toss lightning bolts to shrink everyone else on the road. It would be chaotic and a huge disaster, but it’s fun to imagine the possibilities anyway.

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