Monday Mural

 I'm linking up at Monday Mural


March 2021 - Toronto ON

Illustrator, muralist and teacher Natalie Very B. loves using her favourite colours, the colours of both the Canadian and Polish flags, in her large-scale pieces. “It’s about my cultural background, but they’re also really bold colours, and I love messages that can be seen from afar and make a statement,” she says. For her StreetARToronto project, she wanted to celebrate some of the essential workers who don’t get recognized as much as they should. She painted “thank you” in a giant heart, and added portraits of eight groups of front-line workers represented by a character: there’s a farmer, librarian, musician, lab staff, telehealth worker, doctor, visual artist and food delivery person—all of them exuding strength, courage and warmth. She also added the phrase “stronger together,” a common slogan in her work that celebrates diversity.





And around the corner we found an Emily May Rose mural that I have never seen before. It is hidden away bur features her iconic raccoons.

    Hmmm, to work or even better eat there! Big WOW.

    Love ... uh, again, well there is never enough love, is there? Especially the first mural.
    Good to see there are people who acknowledge that some fight on every day.
    Bet this produces lots of smiles.
