Vandalist: Here Be Dragons

A downtown dragon looks for its Khaleesi.

FIELD NOTES: We are head over heels for this piece! We love the contrast between the perfectly detailed dragon eye, including the reflected cityscape, and the stylized painting around it. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—the artistic skill that goes into graffiti is absolutely incredible. It feels like work of this calibre should be tucked away in a distant gallery or an art collector’s private collection, but instead it is in Graffiti Alley where anyone and everyone can enjoy it freely. Plus, you can never go wrong with dragons.

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

Photo Gallery: The Best of Pride 2015

A look back on Pride 2015 in photos.

"Toronto Pride 2015" - Photo by Maria Casacalenda from the Torontoist Flickr Pool

Torontonians partied extra hard this year for Pride Week—in part for the usual reasons, but also due to the U.S. Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling. With the help of the Torontoist Flickr Pool, we took a look at some of the best photos and moments from a rainy, damp, and excellent Pride 2015.
