... and as a Canadian:
I hope that one day my art will make like the McKenzie brothers and, "Take off, eh?"


  1. I actually saw Keith Haring tagging a wall in the NYC subway years ago. He was just starting to gain attention at that point. It wasn't until years later that I actually realized what I saw :)

  2. Isn't that funny. Even nowadays, there can be amazing pieces of "unsolicited" wall art in our cities. Some even make me smile.
