Other (government name, Troy Lovegates), balances painterly portrait techniques with joyfully naive, quick-hit accessories. His murals, sometimes big and bold and other times delightfully small, are testament to the juxtaposition of style. Occasionally, he'll even toss in a paste up. His is mash-up street art that succeeds in pulling basic human emotions and (when emotions are not part of the plan) shocking passers by with creepy little faces.
Here are recent examples of Other's work, both located in Toronto.
