About the Mural Map

When Mural Routes began, our vision was to create four local “mural routes” in Scarborough (now part of the amalgamated City of Toronto). Since then our vision has grown. We discovered that there are murals everywhere and we are now helping to link the “mural routes” right across Canada.

Mural Routes Murals

Since 1990 Mural Routes has worked with communities and artists to create over 50 murals across Toronto.

Migration

In addition to highlighting the prominence of green and blue spaces in the area, this triptych of murals created by Bryan Beyung and produced by MU is an allusion to Saint-Jean-Baptiste street’s previous name. It was formerly known as “La Route des deux rivières” (the road of the two rivers) because it’s the only axis linking the two banks of the river, in addition to connecting the two areas of the borough.

In collaboration with Ryerson University and The STEPS initiative, 6 commissioned murals were produced in collaboration with street artist Peru as part of a larger laneway revitalization project to make The O’ keefe Laneway a safer and more vibrant space. Read More

L’air du temps

Continuing along the theme of the four seasons found in the murals produced at the Jeanne-Mance Housing Complex (visible from de Maisonneuve Blvd. East), MU has begun a new series on the theme of the four elements (air, water, earth and fire). This first mural of the series, produced by Phillip Adams, evokes the theme of air by playing with perspectives: the dominating sky causes the building to melt into its environment. The lower part of the work is an historical allusion to the neighbourhood’s architecture prior to the construction of the Jeanne-Mance Housing Complex, in 1958. Read More

Hommage à Michel Tremblay

2013 and 2014 marked the 45th anniversary of the first performance of the play Les Belles-sœurs (1968) and the 30th of Albertine en cinq temps (1984), the 40th anniversary of the plays Hosanna and La duchesse de Langeais and of the novel C’ta ton tour Laura Cadieux (1973) and above all, it marks the 35th anniversary of the publication of La grosse femme d’à côté est enceinte (1978), the first of the Chroniques du Plateau-Mont-Royal, a series of popular works of fiction. It was therefore inconceivable to overlook this opportunity to pay tribute to novelist and playwright, Michel Tremblay. Directly inspired by his body of work, the mural celebrates Tremblay’s invaluable contribution to Quebec literature as well as the quintessential Montreal borough on which he shines a spotlight: the Plateau Mont-Royal.
