Art Trash Toronto

I had been using my collection of ‘found’ art for ‘Picture Perfect’ posts. But there is still a sizeable backlog – some from the wonderful Craven Rd. fence. Others spotted in the trash! A few strategically placed on people’s front porches.

Craven Cosmos

I check out the fence on Craven Road every month or so to see what new art or installations have been attached to it. I’ve been doing this for decades now. The best stretch is in between Dundas E & Gerrard E, but there is some south of Gerrard E as well. These cosmic paintings are recent & are at the Gerrard E end of Craven.

Not All Rainbows Are On Flags

Rainbows are showing up all around east end Toronto. These are pictures from the area bounded by Broadview, O’Connor, Main & Dundas E.

Art on the Street – Toronto

I love coming cross art that has been discarded – paintings, prints, photographs, & even empty frames. Often I take a couple of shots, one of the entire pieces then some of portions, so some of these are paintings without their context.

shh – listen to the raindrops
who is this fake family that use in empty frames anyway

Found Art Toronto

I always take photos of painting, frames, photographs, that have been cast aside or left in unexpected public places. I have been using them as Picture Perfect graphics as well.
