Mimico @ FBI

Completed September 2017, grant by the City of Toronto, Lakeshore Arts & the Mimico-by-the-Bay BIA. A 22’x60’ original mural design by Herman Mejia

A mural that pays tribute to the Mimico neighbourhood in an abstract colorful setting with icons embedded within its core. A bird’s eye view as if it were a map with two of the main roads in Mimico, Lake Ontario, and elements drawn from the community (i.e. Toronto’s skyline, people, bikes, sailboats, pets) and the monumental pigeon in the core to revive the “Ojibwe” term Omiimiikaa that’s the basis for the Mimico name which means “abundant with wild pigeons”

As a finishing detail, the involvement of the Mimico community as an intricate part of the artwork; hand-prints from passerby which help cement the last “strokes”
