Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

Street art

This image was taken in Toronto a couple of years ago and I recently found it in the archives on my hard drive. Street art is very common in Toronto and other major cities, where artists paint for pocket change. What I find most interesting about street art is that it is not permanent, unlike graffiti, although you can find some fantastic graffiti art around town as well. Most street art is painted with chalks and the next rain will wash the sidewalk clean again for another artist.

  1. This is a beautiful one. I have seen some beautiful chalk drawings on the sidewalk and am saddened that it is only temporary. Good that you captured this one.

    • Thank you. The artist actually had several images that he was working on. I put a link in my post (artists) to a shot I took of him working. It was really amazing to watch.
