Monday Mural - Colourful

Andy | Monday, December 02, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

Toronto, Ontario - You can find this colourful mural on the Big Fat Burrito Restaurant in Kensington Market.

Moving in closer brings out the details and the bright colours.

I moved to the end of the building and I was surprised when I found the artist drawing the stencil for his mural. Alex Currie also known as "Runt" or "Al Runt". He draws influences from comic books, and inspiration from the art works of Dr. Seuss.

  11. That is quite an ambitious undertaking. I like murals but the best part for me is the picture of the artist at work. Quite a talented fellow.

  15. I definitely see the influence of comic books especially from the era of Mr. Natural and other creations of Art Crumb. Don't see a burrito reference in there at all, but I'm sure the burrito joint is cool with that. The riot of color defines the corner. Love the capture of the artist. Looks like he's deciding what to do next. As always, thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    And how neat that you saw - and talked to - the artist!
