Toronto-based cannabis lifestyle brand Tokyo Smoke opened its newest location in the city's Bloor Street East neighbourhood -- highlighting a diverse product range and a collection of limited edition works from famed street artist Banksy.
The Bristish artist is best known for his subversive subject matter and the mystery surrounding his identity. With that, he has gained a mass following globally, and his celebrated works are now finding a home inside Tokyo Smoke's newest retail space. The store's private art collection was curated by owner Rob Heydon, and includes a number of rare pieces, including some that have never been seen in Canada.
In addition to highlighting pieces from Banksy, the retail space installation also spotlights works from other prominent names like Pure Evil, Warhol and Kaws. "In these strange times, it felt fitting to allow customers to browse, shop and learn about cannabis while enjoying some art while waiting patiently as we practise social distancing," said owner Rob Heydon about the new retail installation that aims to enhance customers' shopping experience during an uncertain time when social distancing continues to be used as a COVID-19 safety measure.
