Nestled in the backstreets of downtown Toronto are a few alleys that cater to  graffitti artists and aficionados.

Walls, structures, or any surface can, and will be used as a canvas. The alleyways stretch across a few city blocks, from Spadina Ave. to Portlands St. running east and west, then spreading out north and south in some adjoining streets.

Artists will work on a single project taking hours, or many days.

All sections are public property, so any piece of a work can be painted over by someone else at any time.

There is no guarantee how long the artwork will last.
