St. Thomas is home to many murals throughout our City. Each week we are highlighting a mural, along with the address of where the mural is located, so you can go check it out!!
From the Artist – “I often have an abstract approach. Depending on the surface I paint, I will likely try to find what fits on the spot. I have done a lot of sketches of figurative objects and animals, I considered painting the birds I was seeing all around, but I felt that those boxcars are usually seen from far away and that I should paint something beyond the figurative. I used the space to play with composition and bring out something organic, something alive, that could be an organism or simply a lifeform that has its own dynamic growing on this steel square object.”
To see this mural in person, visit 225 Wellington Street.
