I'm now a Facebook friend of The Giant Storybook Project, the page of a German artist duo called Herakut on which I learned that these two artists started last September to paint the story of two giant characters on murals all over the world. (You can see all the photos on their page.) Toronto's mural is their fifth.
(Update as of June 2, 2013)
As a bonus, there used to be Red Rocket Coffee, a cool café which opened in summer 2012 at the corner of Dundas East and Logan. It made it a fun mural/coffee combo stop before heading to enjoy all the shops along Queen East.
It unfortunately closed a few months ago. I'm leaving the photos I uploaded in my initial post to inspire potential café owners!
Back to the Storybook Project:Their first mural was done in New York.
Second mural in Lexington, Kentucky.
Third in Eresing, Germany.
Forth in Montreal.
Since, they've done one in Rochester (state of New York), in San Francisco (California) and Miami (Florida).
|They'll move on to other countries to continue their project through 2013.|
