Changes

The Lawrence Ave mural moves into the scary parts as we go along to the left. We have left the peace of the sea and entered the city which then becomes industrialized and produces air pollution and finally the city seems to be tilting and falling into disrepair. I wonder if the people in the house visible above this section were some of the ones who complained about the mural?

Well, that's quite depressing even if there's a lot of truth in it. But I think that Toronto tends to keep things in good shape, right? I sure wouldn't want to look at this every day, though.

Sharon Anck said...

I have to agree with Lowell, this part is quite depressing.

Luis Gomez said...

Interesting mural Pat.

Bill Nicholls said...

Does look quite creepy

VP said...

When artists go preaching they often show their childish cultural background...

It's a sad world we live in Pat and getting sadder every day! This group of artists have expressed their concerns in the only way they know how, c'est la vie oui! I was in the art gallery today to keep out of the heat and honestly some of the art in there I wouldn't pay a dollar for :)

Very dystopian...

William Kendall said...

Depressing and dystopian come to mind.

the ghostly creature with the gas mask is telling

Halcyon said...

I have to admit, it's not the happiest mural subject. I can see why people would complain, but it is the truth!

Nicol Carm said...

What a sharp contrast between the mural and the idyllic image behind!

That's sort of life in Paris. Well, I'm exaggerating of course, but there's a hint...

Taken For Granted said...

The neighbors above the mural probably weren't the complainers. They can't see the mural from their house. The subject is a bit sad with the painting of a man in a gas mask due to air pollution.

looks interesting

Revrunner said...

Well, I don't know. But I sure like the looks of that spruce tree between the house and the satellite dish.

Cloudia said...

yes, I'd call it scary

Lois said...

Yes, very scary! I also agree with Lowell about it being a little depressing.

Linda said...

Oh dear! That would be disturbing to look at every day. Nice colors though.

Are those magic mushrooms floating behind the guy in the gas mask? Maybe he's on a bad trip rather than living in Armageddon. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

EG CameraGirl said...

Yep, scary, and way too close to a very possible truth in our near future, I fear.

D.Nambiar said...

Yeah, this one has a lot to say; makes you stop and think for a while.

Stephanie said...

I agree with Lowell. It is scary to look at but is the truth.

Jack said...

Given that I am not super-excited about a lot of murals, I'll bet you can figure out where I would be on this one.

Karen S. said...

It is quite haunting, but the artwork is stunning, but the subject matter is a bit disturbing!

We must take better care of the environment, it's for the good of all.
Great wall !!
