New book documents hidden graffiti in Toronto

Hidden Toronto is a new book that explores the city’s inconspicuous places and the graffiti that’s found among them. The book’s fifty-two images are organized into three sections covering buildings, bridges, and watersheds and is based on the premise that interesting spaces and artwork lie just out of view all around us. Once you have the desire to go and find them, there’s a world of treasure to be found out there.

In anticipation of the book’s launch tonight, I spoke with author Kathy Toth about Toronto’s graffiti scene, the so-called war on street-art, and the pleasures of urban exploration.
