What makes this tour special

Toronto is home to a thriving street art scene with pieces by some of the world's most exceptional street, mural, and graffiti artists which reflect the city's diversity. From ancient Indigenous art to modern murals, Toronto's street art scene has revolutionized the city's public spaces, transforming streets, parks, and laneways into a massive outdoor art gallery.

On your private street art tour, you will:

The emergence of the Toronto graffiti movement can be traced back to the late 1980s, but in the last decades, it became a true cultural phenomenon. 

The public perception of street art evolved from being seen as vandalism to being recognized as a legitimate art form, a change that the city of Toronto embraced and supported with street art festivals, guided tours, and public art programs.

These public art programs involve a designated panel that determines the artistic merit of a design to remain in its current location, and the city facilitates the collaboration between building owners and the artists by offering commissioned work opportunities and maintaining a directory of graffiti artists.

Numerous pieces can be found in various outdoor areas and alleyways throughout the city, transforming it into an open-air museum which reflects the diversity of cultures present in the city, making it a very distinctive kind of artwork.

From Kensington Market, enjoy a walk to the Graffiti Alley in the Fashion District, where any expression of art is encouraged and celebrated, with a narrow alleyway stretching from Spadina Avenue to Portland Street and featuring ever-changing graffiti and street art from local and international artists. 

Take your time to explore the alley and snap some photos of the vibrant artwork.
