People pounding the pavement in Toronto are getting a lesson in social awareness thanks to the confronting street art of Fauxreel’s current series, ‘The Unaddressed,’ which effectively spells out some touching truths about homelessness.

The artworks realistically represent homeless people clutching signs upon which requests for money would normally be written. Instead, the signs they are holding feature powerful statements revealing some sad truths about homelessness and the emotions experienced by people who find themselves in this unfortunate situation.
