Vandalist: Buff Monster

A monstrous gift from south of the border.

FIELD NOTES: We love it when visiting graffiti artists give back to Toronto with their work. Not only does it validate the fact that Toronto is a world class city for graffiti and street art, it’s a lovely gesture. We’re particularly appreciative of this mural by American artist Buff Monster. Buff Monster is living the dream. His brightly-coloured graffiti has expanded into publications, gallery shows around the world, and a slew of merchandise and collectables. And even with all this success, he’s still rooted in graffiti.

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