Make a day of it!

event image

Yorkville Murals is a cultural initiative that celebrates contemporary muralism and public art. With both large- and small-scale designs throughout Bloor-Yorkville, we invite you to discover one-of-a-kind works of art while exploring our fantastic community! The artwork can be found where you least expect it, from laneways all the way to the top of a parking garage!

Bloor-Yorkville is home to countless locally and internationally celebrated fashion retailers, to Toronto’s most coveted restaurants, luxury spas, boutique hotels, art galleries, and much more. We invite you to make a day of your Yorkville Murals art walk by exploring our online directory, mapping your coffee breaks, patio stops, and everything in between. Be sure to follow the Yorkville Murals map below.

ARTISTS 2020

Urban Artists

Local artists will be bringing their creative vision to our community by creating both temporary and more permanent installations throughout the summer. In addition to traditional murals, artist works will include mobile-mural backdrops and painted telephone boxes. Each of these avenues allows for further creative expression while brightening and uplifting our neighbourhood.

Previous artists have included Xray, Mateo, Ola Volo, Mr. Brainwash, Whatisadam, Ben Johnston, Getso, Peru143, and RISK. Yorkville Murals has also produced outdoor sculptures by WIA, Laurence Vallieres, and KWEST, as well as a unique light installation by Ghost Atelier and presented by OOG. In 2019, both Xray and Mateo created live artworks during the Yorkville Murals Block Party.
