421 Markham Road Bell Box

Mural Routes Member(s): Andre Kan Completed: June 2021

This pink-background Bell Box features geometric and abstract shapes to liven up the boulevard of 421 Markham. This design expands across the unique double-Bell Box configuration at this intersection, featuring one large Bell Box immediately next to a smaller, rectangular signal box-size structure. Rubik’s cubes, mono-colour 3-D and abstract shapes fly over green triangles and blue streaks, which give the appearance of a geometric forest resting on the bottom of both structures that make up this Bell Box.

Artist’s Statement: “Located near the communal housing complex, I made this piece almost like a meeting place for all the kids that live in this neighbourhood. This apartment complex literally has nothing but two swing sets, and the sketchiest looking variety store so you can imagine how bored some of these kids get during the pandemic. I got a lot of wonderful feedback from the neighbourhood, and met a lot of lovely people and I’m glad this is something that will brighten up their day 🙂”

This Bell Box is located on the boulevard in front of 421 Markham Road, just south of Blakemanor Blv. bus stop.
