Context

This was up for about 2 months. I might have painted it but it was designed with women from the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre and installed by a men's action collective. We put up this hand painted billboard on 2 different buildings in Toronto. We had no permission, but just put up safety cones and scaffolding, no problem.
