New Mural


I go past this building all the time and just a couple of weeks ago noticed this mural which I think is new and replaces some flowers or something that had been painted on the wall. Judging by the imagery, it would seem to be a first nation artist who did the piece but I have been unable to find any info on it so far. I love all the bright colours especially during the grey winter!

This is blooming marvelous. Whoever done this should be very proud of themselves. Thanks for sharing

I can see how this mural would brighten your day. =)

I enjoy any kind of art that tries to honor an indigenous society. Indians in both Canada and the US have suffered mightily in the past and are sell viewed in prejudicial ways by many, too many, people. I love this art, the forms used and the colors.

A bit of an Hawaian feel to the piece

Wonderful colors, a little Peter Max in there, and I agree, appears to be first nation art as well. Nice capture

I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw the influence of Peter Max in this mural. The artist signed it in the upper right quadrant and his signature looks to take the shape of of a wolf. Can anyone read the name? What is the significance of the wolf in Canadian tribal mythology? Questions and more questions. Wonderful contributions to Monday Murals. Thanks for participating and let us know if you find out more info.

Nice capture. When I post my photos of murals I also like to give artist their due credit. Unfortunately most of the time this information is difficult to find.

The colours are cheerful and I agree that it looks like it was done by a First Nations artist.

I like the totem. And the colors are nice too!

Another great one! Love the totem.

I'm sure you'll be able to grow an aloe indoors, just keep in mind it comes from dry areas in southern Africa, therefore it needs much light, even some direct sunlight and not much water (it will easily rot). A good drainage is essential.
