StART Support provides materials for the creation of graffiti art and art murals on properties with a history of repeated graffiti vandalism on walls exposed to city streets.
KJ Bit Collective partnered with StreetARToronto to transform this community laneway into a giant canvas of graffiti and mural art. KJ Bit organized 75 artists to paint garages in two live-paint jams. The initiatives were well supported by local residents who now enjoy their revitalized laneway. KJ Bit are Jieun June Kim and Erika James.
