Vandalist: Burnt Bacon

A mural that looks as good as its namesake tastes


BY: Bacon

LOCATION: Parkdale

FIELD NOTES: Giving yourself the handle “Bacon” is genius. Named after the widely adored food, Bacon must be winning everyone’s hearts (and stomachs). It hardly seems fair, as even the most staunch anti-graffiti advocates would have trouble admitting they dislike Bacon. The name, though, is secondary to the amazing skill seen in this burner*. This isn’t the first time we’ve featured some of Bacon’s work. He’s also responsible for this incredible dragon piece. The beautiful but indecipherable mural was a mystery to us at the time. Now we can make out the intricate letters of his handle. You know graffiti is good when you have to reverse-engineer the mural to figure out who painted it. The talent involved in making pieces like these will never stop blowing our minds.

*Burner: A really good piece that seems to “burn” off of the wall
