Parkdale's Angel Carrillo wins Inner Ninja Turtle challenge

Nationwide street art challenge

TNMT street art challenge

Parkdale resident Angel Carillo's colour design won the Canada-wide Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle street art challenge.

Parkdale street artist Angel Carrillo won the Inner Ninja Turtle street art challenge organized by Nickelodeon and Walmart after nationwide votes were counted on May 12.

Carrillo's design will be featured on a T-shirt available in Walmart this fall.

The street art challenge had four Toronto artists design their own version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles using graffiti art. After a month of voting on designs, Canadians chose Carrillo's design for the winner.

"I told Nickelodeon I want to retouch the design," Carrillo said. "I'm gonna resubmit a more detailed design. When it's printed on the T-shirt, I want people to understand the difference between graffiti art and contemporary art."

"It's not like a graphic designer trying to do graffiti, it's a graffiti artist doing art," he added.

Carrillo is a well-known Toronto street artist. His work ranges from tattoos to wall murals, demonstrating his wide range of artistic ability. Carrillo is active in the Parkdale community and works as an art coordinator and educator. He aims to bring graffiti art to the mainstream and demonstrate it is a vital art form. He's part of an art guild called Wallnoize, which aims for this goal.

"We showcase graffiti arts and provide them materials and a space for them to paint," Carrillo said. "We have real street artists with so much talent in the city, it's nice to know that guys like Nickelodeon and Walmart are taking notice. I say to these guys, why go to New York when you have talent here in Toronto?"

Carrillo credits his friends and colleagues in Parkdale for the win, as he says they supported him with votes and encouragement.

"I want to say a big thank you to my Parkdale community," he said. "I do it basically for Parkdale, I represent Parkdale, I've never strayed away from that and I never will."

Carrillo's retouched design of the Ninja Turtles will be available on a T-shirt in Walmart this fall.

Winner (1st Place) - "Stick it up your shell!" by Angel Carrillo (Cruz1):

2nd Place - "Freeze Slimeballs!" by Spencer Harrington (Random):

3rd Place - "Come on, gimmie your best!" by Adrian Hayles:

4th Place - "Hot Nunchuk Fury!" by José-Gabriel Sandoval (Wahziir):
