Parkdale Gets New Mural

October 25, 2011
Thanks to the City of Toronto's Mural Grant, the west facing wall of 1290 Queen St W (The Public Butter) will house the latest mural in Parkdale.  Local muralist Matt McNaught has lent his skilled hands to designing and painting the newest piece of public art to our streets.  If you recall, the previous decade old mural that covered that wall was also done by McNaught; the mural was in reference to the dojo that once offered lessons in that building.  He was happy to return and give new  life to the wall with a mural that reflected Parkdale. [gallery columns="4"] McNaught is no stranger to crafting graffiti pieces in Parkdale, you can see his handywork at Elmgrove Ave and Queen St W, Made You Look building, the Milky Way as well as 1506 Queen St W, Tibetan Emporium and Entertainment (upper level, west facing wall). The untitled mural is slated forcompletion on October 28, 2011.  Check out Matt's blog at
