The young artist from Nova Scotia, who signs his graffiti art “Uber500,” has scored another hit with his work on a garage in the Kensington Market, on the west side of Augusta Avenue, a short distance north of Dundas Street. The work contains Uber’s favourite character, a yellow bird resembling a chicken, and sea creatures. In this work, a dog is also featured. The pictures that follow in this post are indeed colourful, and are a welcomed addition to the graffiti art of the Kensington Market, where Uber has several other excellent contributions.
