#AGOfieldtrip: Pascal Paquette’s Instagram tour of new Toronto street art

September 16th, 2014

We handed over our Instagram account to Toronto artist Pascal Paquette last week, and from Sept. 10 to 13 he travelled around Toronto’s street and alleys capturing new street art and graffiti work, both commissioned and sanctioned, along with classic works from recent years. The 15 photos he shared with our followers are evidence of Toronto’s thriving street art community, which provides fertile ground for Toronto talent and attracts accomplished artists from around the world. Many thanks to Pascal for the tour and to all the artists who’ve brightened our city’s streets with these projects.

Pascal Paquette is primarily a fine art painter, and also uses street art, graffiti and photography in his site-specific projects. His art has been exhibited, commissioned and published internationally and locally, notably at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) and the AGO in 2012, when he and Sean Martindale presented their collaborative installation NOW. He lives in Toronto, Canada, and posts to Instagram at @pascalpaquette.
