“The City of Gears”, Bathurst & Queen Street West laneway

You can’t miss it.  A huge piece of black and white comic book art grabs your attention in a nondescript laneway, east of Bathurst Street, north of Queen Street West.  Created by multi-talented artist, MIKE PARSONS, the metropolis is depicted as an ominous gear propelled by a sea of anonymous characters who work hard to feed the machine.

MIKE has completed several solo exhibitions, and several hundred outdoor performances, as well as prestigious projects for the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Hudson’s Bay Company and Nuit Blanche.  He’s produced graphic novels, fashion designs, print editions and animated artworks.  The panorama image below is from “Virtual Metropolis”, a collaboration with video game programmer, MICHAEL PETERS.  Website: http://www.heyapathy.com
