Samba On Dundas Mural
It was such a beautiful weekend that I decided to wander along Dundas St W in the Little Portugal area which is also understandably heavy with Brazilian stores and bakeries. I discovered a series of murals along the street which were all designed by the same artist, Jose Ortega, who was born in Ecuador but now lives here and is the artistic director of the Lula Lounge, a Latin night club and event space on the street. Ortega has also designed 2 murals for the New York subway system and even postage stamps. This Samba mural was just recently completed in time for the "Samba On Dundas" festival which took place in September - I love the colours and movement! More murals to come for the next few days.
