Toven in Baltimore: One Giant Leap for Poets

A recent sunny day brought Baltimore Street Artist Toven outside to install some new work, including his humorous mashup of American romantic writer Edgar Allan Poe and an astronaut. An avid reader, this ex graffiti writer has also done large wheatpaste tributes in the past to some of his heroes like Burroughs, Bukowski and Kerouac.

While he experiments with images of wildlife of the elephantine variety and dips into more gothic or macabre imagery periodically, it’s his twisted portraits of these thinkers and dreamers that have more clearly established Toven’s insider status in outside art like this.
