Saw the first mural for the 2012 Grey Cup

03 Nov

This morning I noticed the first advertising mural I have seen for thus year’s Grey Cup Game. It was on a wall on a building at Queen West and McCaul Streets.

               The two men working on the mural are on the swing-stage in the picture.

    The adhesive paper around the outline of the CN Tower had not yet been removed.

Similarly, the adhesive paper remains on the outline of the buildings at the base of the mural.

In July of 2011, I placed a post on this blog about the abstract expressionists. At that time, there was an exhibition of their work at the AGO. I received comments from readers who strongly disagreed with the post. Their opinions were indeed valid, but the ideas expressed in the post may also have validity. To view this post:

In August of 2012 I placed another post in which I compared the work of the graffiti artist Uber5000 to the abstract expressionists. This too became a controversial post.
