Spadina Bus


This mural by the artist Dudeman pays tribute to the Spadina 77B bus which runs along Spadina Ave from Bloor St and then down to the lake and along Queen's Quay to Bay St. This garage is quite close to the Spadina station.

I love the bus in this mural but I'm not so sure about all the skulls. They seem like a strange image to decorate around the bus.

Tom said...

...colorful, but why all of the skulls? Thanks for sharing!

RedPat said...

I'm not sure why the skulls are there either.

I was baffled by the skulls but a quick bit of research on Google reveals that Spadina Bus was the name of a hit single by a band called the Shuffle Demons, who art also namechecked on the mural. It's on YouTube here:

where there's also some film of the bus itself.
Well, that's passed twenty minutes or so of a rainy afternoon!

That is faaaaabulous Pat, as for the skills, that's artistic licence 😉 we'll never know why 😁

Knowing the way people swing in and out of my garage, I'd have to give some serious thought to this. :-)

That is a wonderful mural, and my thanks to John for explaining the skulls. It all makes sense now. The skulls do not mean that riding the bus will become lethal due to the pandemic, but some might interpret it that way.

The bus looks like it ready to drive right out from the door.
Good one, Pat.

Great mural.

Reminds me of how the Mexican people "celebrate" a lost one. Great work, whatever the meaning.
