Lee's Palace mural designer will paint your home or office (for a price)
Earlier this year, the two firms commissioned to Runt paint a part of their shared office space near Adelaide and Spadina after one of the Bizmedia employees salvaged a piece of the old Lee's Palace mural in a dumpster behind the venue. Not satisfied in merely owning a two-hundred-and-fifty pound amalgamation of concrete, copper wire, stucco, and paint bearing Runt's twisted creations, they brought him in to paint something new.
In fact, their office space is becoming a sort of informal gallery of Toronto street artists. Fellow Toronto artist Mike Parsons (Hey Apathy) had earlier been contracted to paint part of a wall.
So what does it cost to convince Runt to paint an office, apartment, or other type of space? The column Runt painted for Bizmedia and Playground took the artist a whole week of on-and-off work. Ryan Bannon, Playground's Creative Director, would only reveal that it cost "More than a case of beer, less than a car." For a more detailed quote, it's best to contact Runt himself (firstname.lastname@example.org). Oh, and check out the results in the video above as well as the photos scattered through this post. What do you think of the work?
