Part of the Reclamation Wall, located just east of the overpass before Parkdale (off Queen West)
Dubbed as the ‘largest graffiti mural in Canadian history’, the reclamation wall (just west of Parkdale) was brought together by Urbancorp in combination with local artists in Toronto.
Initially, to prevent tagging issues on the wall, Urbancorp would commission grey paint to cover up the issue. As you can probably surmise- this never actually helped solve the tagging problem. They commissioned the Reclamation Wall to fight back against tagging. It’s done the trick so far (about 4-5 years later).
I’m finding it difficult to see exactly who did each mural but thought I would share anyway 🙂 Ivy has started to take over the top 1/3 to top 1/2 of a lot of these murals, but in the first case below it may have added some funk as well.
Here are some of my favourites:
