Wow... beautiful. I love the tease me poster right before the pic of an actual rear end. As I was scrolling through, I kept thinking... should've emphasized the street scenes. There's great and there's not much graffiti. But, then at the end, obviously... beautiful art. I wish ours would do this more often. We're still at the tagging-level of graffiti for the most part.

Outstanding pictures, as usual! Thanks for sharing, mr.John.

Amazing graffitis. Many of them look incredible. Montreal is always amazing too.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Always a pleasure Mr John. Missed seeing your stuff about our at times graceful and other times butt-ugly town. You manage to merge the fugly and the beauty into one wholesome bag o' chips.

Along with LA, NYC and Miami, Montreal rates right up there as a graffiti capital of NA (although Montreal's style is more comparable to what you see in places like Berlin or Barcelona). The level of art being put up on those walls is just bonkers.

Awesome thread, mr. John.

Ah... Montreal, my home and native land. Calculatingly carefree. Gracefully disheveled. Inimitable.

There's a twins parade, and it's part of the JFL Festival? That IS hilarious.

The photo of the horizontal drunk dude is so mr.John it's not even funny.

Oh, I almost forgot to ask. Since both cities seem to have a huge appreciation for graffiti art, which would you say has a larger collection of it - Montreal or Toronto?

Sorry I really can't answer your question because I'm not very knowledgeable about Toronto's graffiti scene

Here's a few leftovers featuring a little of everything and a little of nothing (hey what do expect for free)
