Lake and Shore

Mural Routes Member(s): Nick Sweetman Philip Cote

Two sides of a long underpass on Thirtieth, completed by Nick Sweetman and Philip Cote in 2019 as part of the Street Art Toronto Partnership Program, with support from Lakeshore Arts and the office of Councillor Mark Grimes. Philip’s black designs in the Woodland style depict various indigenous narratives that weave in and out of Nick’s colourful background, populated by wildlife that lives along the lake shore (or in some cases used to). Throughout the mural, smoke from the 4 sacred plants – cedar, sweet grass, tobacco and sage – connects all the living things.

Artists: Nick Sweetman and Philip Cote
