Vandalist: Place Where Trees Stand In The Water

Transformations, large and small.

FIELD NOTES: We get the feeling these lovely wheat-pastes are a criticism of how disconnected we are from nature and our roots. The land we call Toronto would be unrecognizable to those who were here hundreds of years ago, before colonization, when the area consisted of forests and creeks. For all the neighbourhood residents who may lament local changes as Queen West gentrifies, in the scheme of things those adjustments are tiny in relation to the ones the city has already undergone.

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