Saskatoon Graffiti

Skateboard Graffiti along Spadina

One of the assignments I was given for my Women’s and Gender Studies class this week was to take a picture of some graffiti, write a sentence or two up about why you like it, and email it to the prof. It was a simple assignment, not worth much — so of course I fell in love with it.

This is the picture that I chose to send in with the assignment. My write-up about it is just about how it could be seen as a political statement – that pedestrians and bikers have designated walking areas, while skateboarders are continuously shoved into skateparks and out of the public’s eye.

So, being me and absolutely falling in love with any “artsy” assignment that I’m given, I called up one of my best friends and asked her if she would come take pictures of graffiti with me. (BTW Elsie – feel free to steal the pics :D)

We took a lot of pictures – and I consider all of them to be good ones, so I thought I’d share them with you instead of just letting them fester in the camera.

Tar? Water? Some sort of symbolism here?


The sheaf of wheat in this picture looks distinctly evil



Cons 125 - Constable 125? Hmm.

Does this remind you of Mario Bros.?

I don't know what this means but I like it


Whew! Sorry these pictures are so… all over the place, but I can’t seem to make them line up proper at all… WordPress is hard to post pictures in!
