Metro Minute with graffiti artists

Whatever your take on the subject, there’s no question the graffiti lining the walls around Keele subway station grabs your eyes — and holds them long past the tunnel.

While illegal tagging is often ugly and gratuitous, the aerosol masterpieces that line the stretch along the Junction have the full permission of the city, and are transforming the artists into local legends. Toronto’s own HSA (Humble Servants of Art) has been putting up fresh murals on a regular basis since 1998. Be sure to keep your attention sharp as you never know when a spot of dull brick will suddenly become a living monument to the craft.
