Toronto artist Pascal Paquette is taking over our Instagram account from Sept. 10 to 13. He’ll be roaming Toronto streets to post pics of street art and graffiti, both commissioned and sanctioned works produced mainly this summer, along with classic works from recent years. Follow @agotoronto and #agofieldtrip to see the photos, then find the geo-mapped locations and experience the pieces in person.

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.
