Murals are everywhere in Toronto. They appear under bridges, the sides of buildings, on garage doors and in other unexpected locations. Mural artists are now often hired to create works that transform brick and concrete walls into giant galleries. The results can be realistic, trompe l’oeil, cartoonish and everything in-between. Whatever the style, these visual attractions enliven the city and engage even the most casual passerby.
Photographer Kurt Lund has documented hundreds of these creations around Toronto. Here are a few of the images he has captured.
