Art in the City

In yesterday's Toronto Star there was an article called "A new life, complete with address" about a formerly homeless man who created his own mental map of the city on the sidewalk.

I've seen his etching at the corner of King St. and Simcoe St. and wondered why he chose those specific images to represent the city. I thought they looked nice (sure beats looking at the other boring sidewalks), and it's unfortunate that the city sent out workers to chisel them off.

For those of you who enjoyed Tattoo's art, be pleased to know that he's back and recreating his brilliant work, despite the fact that the city sanded off his first incarnation.
