Day 37 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Graffiti artists under overpass, Ottawa, Ontario

Graffitti Artist under overpass, Ottawa, Ontario.


Tim and I met these graffiti artists on a walk with our dogs in the morning by Brewer Park. The walls under this bridge are designated as legal graffiti walls in Ottawa. The day after this picture was taken, we came upon a city worker who was hired to paint over the graffiti that had been spray painted on the sides of the bridge that are not deemed legal spaces. Below is the Graffiti Management By-law 2008: 

The City of Ottawa’s Graffiti Management By-law was enacted in January 2008. The By-law requires that ALL* property within the City of Ottawa remain free of graffiti. The by-law applies to all property within the City of Ottawa with the exception of any area designated as a “legal graffiti wall”. Placing graffiti on public or private property is a crime. Under the By-law, graffiti vandals can now face fines of $610 including victim surcharge.
