UofT mural graffiti

Toronto's longest single graffiti wall unveiled at UofT

Toronto's longest single graffiti wall has cropped up in a rather unlikely place: the University of Toronto's St. George campus. The 276-foot long mural is located on a temporary wall surrounding the Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CEIE) construction site. It's not as long as Parkdale's Reclamation Project, but that was the work of some 50 artists.

Prominent Toronto graffiti artist Jason Wing, commonly known as SKAM, did most of the painting along with Aleksandrs Popelavskis and Alex Lazich. The faculty of engineering helped design the installation and the artists brought it to life using brightly coloured spray-paint to highlights the department's success as well as the innovative nature of its field.

With over 2,208 square-feet of wall space, this massive mural is hard to miss. And it'll stay up until 2017, when the CEIE is complete.
