August 2020 - Toronto ON
Near Kensington Market at Alexandra Park on Cameron St. Painted in 2005.
This mural was created to honour the community work of Sonny Atkinson who was a long-time resident of the Alexandra Park community.Sonny dedicated his time to making this neighbourhood a better, safer place by settling disputes, improving street lighting and breaking down unnecessary walls in the community.
He was also instrumental in making the Alexandra Park housing project into a tenant-run co-op. The Atkinson co-op was named after Sonny Atkinson for his contributions to the community.
Also found on this trek was this one by Sweetman.
On the side of Maker pizza.
As I researched the mural above, on a street I had never walked up, I realized that I had other murals from the corner of Queen and Cameron.
