Located at the north laneway behind Dundas St. West, between Dufferin St. and Gladstone Ave. lies a beautiful grayscale portrait of a women smoking. The drip technique can be observed in this artwork, as the gracious expressions are elegantly placed in the composition.
Our community is blessed to have such great talent present. We thank the artist for his inspiration and art.

An original classic drawing located in the most conspicuous location, the Boland Laneway.
By the observation of the elements that accompany the portrait, we can calculate its creation back to the 1980’s.
The mural has transformed the city, its colours decorate the entire neighbourhood, providing citizens a reference point to meet, and also admire the majestic designs, a common stamp known in Ortegas’ works.
A collection of great pieces of artwork created by many collectives, an effort to colourize the laneways and attract visitors to these special corners of the City.
This artist we knows draws inspiration from human figures and faces. This particular piece is a private commissioned artwork, located at the The Loft Urban Salon.
