Artist Alley & Maiden Lane

A public art project called Free 4 Walls is turning downtown alleys into outdoor galleries. The project was made possible through an Ontario Trillium grant which pays for materials and artist fees, to bring in some of the top names in street art. Ben Frost from Australia, Nychos from Austria, Bask and Persue and Above from the United States, and many others from across the continent have sprayed their artistry here. Wild fonts, eruptions of colour, psychedelic or abstract, surreal or pop art, the backstreet dances with paint and creativity, sometimes two storeys high.

Daniel Bombardier, teamed with Canadian artist Omen, recently completing the bold project’s signature piece: an amazingly rendered, 26-foot high portrait of a woman on one wall, while across the alley, a spray-paint can seems to be floating away from her hand.
