Graffiti At Its Finest - Toronto's Style In Progress
Dozens of graffiti artists from all ages and skill, gathered yesterday in Toronto's "Graffiti Alley" for the 2008 Style In Progress, a legal event which spans from Spadina Avenue to Portland Street in the Queen Street West alleys.
Through the distinctive odour of paint and multi-coloured haze which drifted in the breeze, the mostly masked writers lined side by side, with empty cans piled at their feet, quickly transformed bricked and stuccoed walls into a more canvas like appearance, as the unsightly became murals of beauty.
Backed by DJ's spinnin' tunes, and the many B-Boys & Girls throwing down their style of dance on a portable linoleum floor, the 8 hour event was nothing less than an awesome display of great artistic talent, achieved no doubt, by countless hours of spray paint in the
hand, and imagination in the mind.
