Vandalist: Critics Gonna Criticize

FIELD NOTES:   One of downtown Toronto’s more visible and prolific street artists, Gregory Alan Elliott is not your average vandal. A father of four, he tries to act responsibly and within the law, writes poetry (and sometimes snoetry), and he puts his stuff up under his full legal name. And in this, he offers a rejoinder to his critics in a way that is charming and empowering.
