Graffiti Profile: Gregory Alan Elliott

Artist and graphic designer Gregory Alan Elliott first caught my eye while I was photographing in the Queen St West graffiti alley. His stencils and cut outs are usually uplifting, poetic and he often takes full ownership of the graffiti by stating his full name at the bottom of each piece. I met him down at St. James Park during the Occupy Toronto movement, where he had his mobile, single person sleeper trailer. My daily dog walks along the Western Toronto Railpath always pass by the happy face hearts he’s installed along the path for passing Go Trains.
