Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.


June 2016 - Toronto ON
Alexandra Park is a 2.7 hectare park at Bathurst Street and Dundas Street West featuring a ball diamond, picnic area, community garden, volleyball court, skateboard area, wading pool and a children's playground. On the west side of the park is the Alexandra Park/ Harry Gairey Outdoor Artificial Ice Rink. On the north side of the park is the Alexandra Park Outdoor Pool and the Scadding Court Community Centre.

This mural was done in 2014 by Elicser and Other [Troy Lovegates] by city commission.




There is a group of 3 Mexican muralists who dominated mural story telling in the past 100 years. I have seen works by the three in Mexico: Jose OrozcoDavid Alfaro Siqueiros and by Diego Rivera.
One can find similar strong story-telling elements in the Alexandra Park mural.
