UPDATE – March 2018:

Who am I kidding?

…This is now “Vancouver and Toronto City of Labyrinths Project”.

UPDATE – July 2016:

HiMY SYeD is presently in Vancouver.

With each passing day, this project is increasingly inaccurately named “Toronto” City of Labyrinths.

Like Banksy’s various “Residencies” the world over, until further notice, “City of Labyrinths” is now in Residency in Vancouver.

What does Residency mean exactly?

It means People living in Vancouver are about to get a LOT more Labyrinths.

Toronto City of Labyrinths is HiMY SYeD’s Project to create a Labyrinth within walking distance of every Torontonian.

Labyrinths are both Temporary using chalk or Semi-Permanent using stones in the natural environment or by painting them on paved surfaces like wading pools in city parks.

Volunteer Labyrinth Makers at times step up to help out, while neighbourhood kids satisfy their curiousity by painting an arc or two.

Toronto City Councillor Mike Layton calls HiMY SYeD, “Torontos Labyrinth Master“…

Labyrinths also make appearances in public spaces during events such as neighbourhood street festivals all the way to larger city events such as the monthly Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington Market, or annual events like Afrofest, Big On Bloor, and OpenStreetsTO.

Thus far, Dozens of Labyrinths have been created throughout Toronto.

“Thank you Himy for your kindness and artistry,
I’m sure you make a lot of people happy with your Labyrinths all over the city.”

    Hi, is it possible to contact someone into this project? I am more than interested on this. I have a big project in mind and I would like to do it as soon as possible: create a big labyrinth in a public park. I designed it one year ago.

    Please, you can write at my email. I really need information!

    Hello! I would love to discuss potentially having some of your gorgeous chalk Labyrinths around Science World British Columbia over the summer while we host the Feature Exhibition A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature! We’ve all experienced some of your works around the seawall before and are in love!
