While we can't be together in person, Torontonians are proving we can still be together in spirit. Since going into lockdown, people have been finding creative ways to send messages of solidarity and love across the city. Artists are now taking to the streets to leave colourful murals to remind everyone that we are in this together. Toronto's COVID-19 street art is popping up all over the city to help us stay strong.

Even in dark and uncertain times, there is a prevailing sense of community in the city.

From cheering on health care workers to helping neighbours with groceries, residents are finding ways to spread love during isolation.

Now, murals of strength and love are appearing on walls throughout the city.

Artists are filling streets with colour and hope with their encouraging messages and artwork.

Pandemic related graffiti has been popping up all over the 6ix, and you may be able to spot it next time you leave your home.

Toronto marketing consultancy firm Kadence World has created a Community Mural Project to send love throughout and support across the city. 

Some of the city's top street artists have come together to paint positive words and images during this uncertain time.

From hopeful words such as, "hang in there" to a mural depicting residents staying at home to stop the spread, the art reminds us that we're all in this together.

“We’re all glued to what seems like non-stop bad news, and it can all seem so overwhelming,” Phil Song, Partner at Kadence World, said in a press release.

“But we believe that in a time when it’s so easy to feel divided, public art can unite us.”

You can find the artwork on high-profile walls in the downtown core, including the Annex Food Hall, Anndore House, King Textiles, and Gusto 101.

With these new murals, as well as other depictions from local artists, Toronto has transformed into a canvas for hope and strength.
