“I stumbled upon the controversial yet powerful, social, cultural, and political artifact that we understand as graffiti. Now Graffiti for all intent and purposes is the unsolicited marking, drawing, and scribbling on private or public property. I can appreciate and what I can acknowledge even regardless of if I agree with it or not is the implicit way graffiti authors itself in an external world. I submit to you that housed in these delinquent murals are profound messages. Messages that give color to a black and white world and at their best serve as moving counter narratives of communities and peoples in it.” –Wilson Okello
My blog serves as my mural; as my catalyst for being able to name what the mural of my life is going to stand for. For me, this blog was my first easel. It is me leaving all the fashion I could squeeze out of Crayola and hieroglyphics for archeologist to discover. As a work of art, Graffiti Alley complimented the markings of my canvas. Wall after wall, this alley was covered in bright, unique, and motivational art that keeps every viewer impressed and inspired.
Location: Graffiti Alley, Toronto
