Underpass Art Four B

This is the back of yesterday's column and the last of this series from King St E. Here we see one of the early bricklayers from the neighbourhood, Corktown, surrounded by factories and gears. Most of the buildings in the area are brick. Bravo to the artists ShalakAttak, BrunoSmoky and Fiya Bruxa for this series of murals titled "Frozen Memories"! You can see 2 of the other columns in the background.

Yes, I was excited to see what the other side had, and I really like this side too, possibly even better. The artwork is exquisite, and the colors so defining! I like that is shares the story of what was.

What a great series Red! The artists have certainly added a lot of color to an otherwise gray structure.

Quite a colourful design. The bricklayer looks very suitably Irish.

This has been an amazing series of murals Pat, how long did it take the various artist to do this.. it always amazes me just how fast they can transform a space.

Thanks for sharing all of these murals, Pat. They are unique and interesting as they speak to the community and its history. Hard to find a good bricklayer these days.

Their art is remarkable. So glad it celebrates the history of the neighborhood. That gives a sense of what it was like and who lived there. The colors and designs are beautiful. Thanks for your posts.
