There’s a reason why the #torontostreetart hashtag has over 50,000 posts on Instagram.
From bold building murals to alleyways covered in colourful graffiti, there’s no need for a membership to check out some seriously stunning art in this city.
And the best part is, the City of Toronto supports the art initiative.
With that, StreetARToronto and Civic Hall Toronto just launched a new online map for 2019.
“Toronto is home to some of the best mural, street and graffiti artists and art in the world. These artists and artworks have transformed Toronto’s public streets, laneways and parks into a city-wide art gallery,” reads the map website.

“This map based app will help you explore the amazing street art located throughout the city. The current database provides a sampling of murals created as part of the StreetARToronto suite of programs from 2012 to 2018. In addition to identifying the artist and arts organization responsible for painting the mural the database describes the stories and themes behind each unique and beautiful artwork.”
According to the site, individually and collectively these murals are designed to celebrate the City of Toronto motto “Diversity Our Strength” and foster a greater sense of belonging among all.
