New Street Art by “Meca” and “Denial” in Windsor, Ontario
Have yourself a nice long gander at the two primo pieces of street art we encountered while exploring Canada’s southernmost city over the last weekend. If you’d quit bein’ a lazy cheapskate and get yourself a passport like you should’ve back in 2003 you too would be able to head across the Detroit River regularly to experience the many quality attractions found within the environs of Detroit’s little sister, Windsor, Ontario. While not on the enviable level of The D when it comes to graffiti and street artistry, these new works by “Meca” and “Denial” definitely add to Windsor’s credibility as a destination for North America’s best spray painters.
Find Meca’s Inuit and Día de los Muertos influenced work on the eastern exterior wall of Walkermolé Mexican Restaurant at 1840 Wyandotte Street East and Denial’s on the very next building to the north down the same alley. We know little of Meca outside of his association with the L.A. based crew of artists collectively known as “The Seventh Letter” and a short, locally produced video we found online about his work shown here. Denial, on the other hand, is a well-established figure in Canadian street style art with a well-developed online presence to boot. Send him $10 for collection of super hip stickers and vandalize your neighborhood with them. ~I♥DM
