In Toronto by Herakut 2012. The sheer size of the piece on nice busy street makes this a real icon for this funky corner.
This series was intended to spark the imagination of the viewer and allow
them to explore the idea of what lies behind a door and the numerous
possibilities that can take place. I have taken photographs of doors from
my travels across the world and strategically placed them in locations
where they are enhanced by the surrounding environment.
Half way through this set I traveled to Cairo, Egypt where I planned to
paste the remaining five photos in the series. Given the go ahead by a few
onlookers, I proceeded to paste a photograph on a very busy street in
downtown Cairo. This was met by many suspicious eyes some of whom order the
picture to be taken down. As I peeled the freshly pasted picture from the
wall a group of thirty or so aggressive men gathered and quickly began
asking; what type of propaganda I was spreading, to present my passport to
prove my citizenship and what was the purpose of my travels to Egypt. As
this crowd grew both in size and aggression, they started to question what
was on my camera and even began to grab my belongings. I quickly realized
that this was trouble and darted across the street, rounded the corner
where a fast stride turned into a dead sprint to my hotel room. As soon as
I entered the room, I promptly tore up my photos, got rid of my stickers
and deleted all my photos related to this incident. So, long story short,
here are ten pictures, none of them in Cairo.

RIP SMASH aka T-MAC.
Had a great time painting this memorial mural that was organized by Smash’s closest friend’s and family. Special thanks to KY for the idea and navigating all the logistics. Met some solid folks with some true ambition to help a struggling area rise up as well as pay respects.
Context: The house on the left is 2100 Hollins St, the house that Smash lived when he was young (now demolished). The house on the right was his last residence, 1900 Fredrick Avenue, which is on the same block as the mural. The tattoos below his eyes are of a spade and a “BH” standing for the intersection of W.Baltimore Street and Hilton Street which is where he hung out. Above his left eye is the text “Love is Pain”.

Here’s a REVS piece I’ve never seen before- nicely decayed.
This is part of my work at a festival in a suburb of Caracas, Venezuela, called San Agustin del Sur, with the intention to give color to the facades of the houses of the people living in that area!
My intention was to create a mural that besides being decorative had a playful, where children can play!
Greets from Venezuela!
