If you walk along Harbord Street, just east of Bathurst Street, you can’t miss the colourful paintings at the entrance to James Hales Lane. Most of them were painted by street artists Shalak and Smoky.
below: This bear is painted on the west side of Bampot Bohemian House of Tea & Board Games which explains the floating tea cup above his head.
below: This peacock is on the other side of the tea house. Signed by MXP, 2004.
below: This tiger is also on Harbord. It faces the peacock. Parts of the picture are washed out because of the angle of the afternoon sun on the day I saw this mural.
James Hales Lane is short and it is a dead end. There isn’t much more graffiti or street art in the lane.
