Vandalist: Mercury Rising

A crazy little thing called art

FIELD NOTES: It’s been almost exactly 20 years since the untimely death of rock god Freddie Mercury. Though it’s been decades since Queen’s heyday, their music is still known and loved by people of all ages and backgrounds, and Freddie’s presence is still dearly missed. So, on November 24, let’s raise a victorious fist to the air, high-five a guy with a killer ‘stache (no shortage of those, thanks to Movember), and have a bicycle race to honour the man who brought us some damn good tunes.

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