Underpass Art

As part of a program to beautify dreary underpasses, the city commissioned artists ShalakAttack, BrunoSmoky & FiyaBruxa to paint murals on 4 supports along King St East. The whole art work is titled Frozen Memories and was just completed this autumn. I will show you the other side of this one tomorrow and the other 3 supports as part of Monday Murals over the next 3 weeks. And thanks to Andy from Eye Candy for tipping me off about this installation.

That woman has a very serious look about her! But the colors are so rich. I think such art is a great idea - underpasses are always dreary!

A wonderful idea - wonder why it wasn't thought of sooner?!

and yes, that was a good article about Hamilton in the Globe - you should come visit for Art Crawl (though, maybe wait for spring!!)
