Nestled between a row of local businesses, the Fortis Calgary wall peaks above many buildings giving people a beautiful view as they walk West down 17th Ave.

In a special mural that was designed to ‘Commemorate Canada’ through generous funding from The Government of Canada, the artist was asked to ruminate on the nuances of the era we are in through his installation. In response to this Alex Kwong brings us a beautiful mural capturing a pivotal moment in time between father and daughter. Depicting Curtis and his daughter Odette on a warm summer afternoon in Calgary, Kwong hopes to expand on the idea of love and how individual relationships can serve as starting points to greater connections with friends, family, and most importantly ourselves. Loving connections in these most familial relationships can be a window into our true nature and the realization that we are all in fact connected and one. Kwong is an exceptionally skilled local artist whose large scale figurative works have become well known in Western Canada.
