Graffiti Be Gone

Completed: 2011

“I was selected by Bernadette Geronazzo, Executive Director of the Marda Loop BRZ to adorn three Utility Boxes on 33 Avenue SW with my unique, stained glass inspired style. This project was in collaboration with the City of Calgary Roads Department and painting began the afternoon of Monday, September 12, 2011. Not only did this public art initiative add colour and artistic flare to the already trendy area, it also simultaneously acts as a graffiti deterrent.

My vision was that the floral theme would bring light and colour to the area, especially during cold and long Calgary winters. In addition to beautifying the city, the painting project encourages Calgarians to embrace fine art into their busy, everyday lives.”
