From dusk to dawn, art overtook the streets of Toronto on September 29th. My team of assistants and I did a wall of throw-ups (term used in street art culture to describe a graffiti piece put up quickly). Hence the title of this work is “Throw Up”, but unlike conventional graffiti, this is made entirely of sugar. Ironic title, to be sure, since you’d surely get sick on this saccharine confection if you ate too much! It was entirely edible, right down to the “spray paint” used for the stencil tags, thanks to Duff brand cake spray paint.
It was an intense night, with hundreds of people watching us, taking photographs and asking questions. But all of that is what also made it a really fun night. Thanks Toronto!
