Toronto Lovebot spotted around the world

Matthew Del Degan's Lovebot design is slowly taking over the world. The art project that began in Toronto with a popular series of stickers evolved into an army of concrete statues shaped like robots in 2013 and will eventually culminate in a DIY plastic toy. Each appearance of the Lovebot, Del Degan says, represents an act of love or kindness.

Despite making the jump to 3D, the stickers remain popular. A quick search on Instagram reveals Lovebots in New York City, Costa Rica, England, and Long Beach, California, as well as locations in Ontario and the Maritimes.

Here are 10 photos of the Toronto Lovebot around Canada and the world.
