FIELD NOTES: We’ve featured work on the Tower Automotive building before. The future site for MOCCA has been sitting empty for years, a big draw for graffiti artists looking for a canvas to show off their skills. Unlike those other pieces—and most of the pieces we feature in Vandalist—this graffiti is not meant to be seen by passersby. These are the the meandered thoughts and ideas of graffiti artists, done out of sight of most of the world. They’re a little less about status and a little more about having fun and enjoying the isolation and incredible view.

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