Canadian graffiti artist Alexander Bacon began painting in the 90’s as a teenager. He is best known for his colourful works lining the alleys and streets of Toronto and achieved international recognition. Bacon describes the art form as being passed down from one generation to the next.
His work has evolved to deconstructing traditional graffiti spray paint techniques to create an abstract graffiti style while maintaining letter form. His use of a mature colour pallet and mixing of realism with the stylized graffiti fonts gives his work a unique look with smooth transitions and texture. Most recently Bacon has been doing large scale murals and Canvas work while maintaining the disciplines of graffiti. His work can be seen all over Toronto.
