Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Artists we can spot in Toronto (Street Art, Murals, Public Art)

Toronto_Fun_Places_TORONTO_STREET_ART_STROLLS_couleurWith my new guide on street art, I want to help the general public understand the added value street art brings to our city and its walkability. In this section, I'm hoping to facilitate the connection between the general public who would like to hire artists to add art in and around their home and the artists.

There are many great organizations helping artists get commissions or grants, and facilitating community projects (check Mural Routes resource page, StreetARToronto artists database, The PATCH Project services page, etc) but I feel there is a missing link between the artists and potential smaller clients who generally don't know how it works, what costs are involved, who can do what.

For the time being, I will simply be adding, on a regular basis, names of artists I have admired in the streets of Toronto, whose name I could identify, often with the help of their fellow artists, with some links to see what they do. (Note that this page also lists artists whose public art can be seen in the guide and international muralists who don't live around the GTA.)

For the SECOND PHASE of this page, I am hoping to pass on information I will get directly from artists I can interview, with information about what kind of commission they accept (ex. do they do garage doors? backyard fences? indoor wall?), what style they want to do (ex. their own creations? reproductions? what style do they want to tackle?) and what kind of price range clients can expect. It won't be an endorsement on my part but simply a resource to finally get that garage door painted. Bear with me, work in progress...
