Coverage

Queen Street West and Gladstone Avenue

Context

Back in the day these pieces would be up for months or years, much longer before it was considered art. The halcyon days for street interventions. I love that you can see the graffiti on the green bridge in the background. That slogan was pasted all over Toronto to protest the 1988 G-8 meeting in Toronto.
