Aerosolegrafia and Graffiti in Vancouver

I recently revisited three favourite sites for graffiti in downtown Vancouver.  Each continues to change with the passing of the months.  2010 was a disastre for graffiti aficionados because the city forced everybody to repaint interesting alleyways back into dull uniform alleyway colours.  But some artistic life is slowly returning, and a few new murals have appeared.  In every case, artists are unknown to me by name, and I use only macrophotography, which admittedly never includes an entire work of art.

First, a shot of a young lady on break, texting (what else) on a ledge in one of the repainted alleys. It is stark.

On to the beautiful art found elsewhere . . . .
