Name: Lewter

Age: 24

What neighbourhood are you from? Weston

What do you 'do'? Professional graffiti artist

How long have you been in Toronto? 6 years

What's your story?

I began painting illegally until I was able to develop my skills and build my portfolio.

I think that if kids were allowed to paint instead of being arrested, they'd be able to develop their art and possibly, put themselves through school instead of taking out loans. Graffiti taught me about colors, layout and design. It also paid my way through college to graduate from graphic design.

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

Diversity.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

Traffic.

You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?

Usually, it'll be a graffiti artist from out of town so we'd probably do a mural together. We might also go to Java House on Queen.

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

I'm secretly a superhero.
