Poster Child's big inflated doll at Nathan Phillips Square

No Love For Poster Child?

Renegade street artist Poster Child has been doing installations on the subway vents in front of Nathan Phillips Square in the last few weeks. For his third piece he created a big inflated doll and invited the folks at Dear Toronto to film the event. Let's just say that not everyone was feeling it:

Poster Child also asks in his blog if the doll was "a security risk" big enough for such a speedy takedown. His last two installations lasted more than 24 hours in public view. The guards at Nathan Phillips are catching on quicker. What did you think of it? And will we expect more art on the grates from Poster Child after this one?
