Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below.

The Doors of Graffiti Alley – Toronto (Part #2)

This post is a continuation of my Doors post a few weeks ago from Graffiti Alley in Toronto.


In some of these shots you have to look closely to find the doors, but they are there:









No door on this last one; just another shot of that one building from the last post, that was done entirely with an underwater theme. I can’t even imagine how long this would have taken to complete.


As always, thanks for looking 🙂

    I am sorry that I missed this great post with a lot of intriguing graffiti examples. The underwater one is my favorite and letters which are jumbled up make me try to figure out “the code,” Norm! 🙂

    Wow, I have never seen anything like this. I can’t imagine how long some of those walls must have taken to paint or the supplies involved.

  30. Again, some awesome captures of street art. The second photo in particular is superb – the lines of connecting walls with the doorway subtle and blended into the overall painting just right, along with the contrast of the mainly black / grey colored wall with the swirling vibrant colored wall.

    That seals it! I definitely want to get down to Graffiti Alley as soon as possible!!
    I really like the 2nd photo – with all the dark, aggressive looking imagery … then completed with a happy face at the top of the door. I couldn’t help but smile 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the rest of that underwater building. I can’t imagine, either, but I love the full, brightly-colored design!
    Great graffiti! Some real talent on display in that alley!

  45. Although these particular ones are out of my league, I am always impressed by what artists can create. I’d love to have a large cup of hot coffee, a chair, and be able to watch them in action because I know I’d be amazed. 🙂

      Funny you should say that Judy; one street artist I follow on Instagram posts pics of his whole process and takes you through his projects step by step. It is amazing the amount of work, prep and planning that go into some of the larger murals.
