The Graffiti BoxMen Project is a Toronto-based initiative focusing on the role of graffiti art in the community. Very often, graffiti is seen as nothing more than senseless vandalism; however, there is a deep-rooted culture behind the movement, which is a reflection of the community and environment in which it is situated. Graffiti is an art form found worldwide, promoted as a form of expression that is by the people, for the people. The Graffiti BoxMan Totem reminds spectators that the practice is not from faceless vandals but rather creative minds sharing something with their community. The project brings together many talented artists in Toronto in order to show the city how these aerosol masterpieces are made. Mirroring Toronto's diversity, each artist adds his or her own unique style and vision to the installation, together making the Boxman into a work of art!
