Monday Mural



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



September 2016 - Toronto ON

Found by surprise, on a walking tour "Lost Breweries of Toronto".
I was aware of them from other bloggers' posts.


From the Toronto Star:

The bold, colourful faces are just one aspect of the new murals that now brighten a once-desolate underpass in Corktown. The transformation is more than just a slap of fresh paint to cover the typical grey of transportation infrastructure; it’s a series by street artists Essencia Art Collective called Frozen Moments.

“Each pillar is kind of like a personification for a certain historical aspect of Corktown,” said Essencia Art Collective co-founder and co-director Elisa Monreal, a.k.a. Shalak Attack, the lead artist and project director.


This week I will show you the side with the faces.
