Vandalist: Birdo 3-D

A horse, of course!

FIELD NOTES: Your mind may be boggled by the appearance of this 3-dimensional horse. But fear not, it is just the optical illusion of forced perspective! Created by local surrealist graffiti artist, Birdo, who is most known for his fantastical geometric animal creations, he won’t rest until all our brains are broken. From any other angle this piece looks like a mess of shapes and colours. Walk around it and the pieces will flow together until you hit the sweet spot and, like magic, this splendid creature will appear before your very eyes.

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