Portage and Main Barrier Mural

Completed: 2022

The barriers at Winnipeg’s famous intersection Portage Avenue and Main Street were painted for a project titled “Pulse.” This title refers to what all individuals have in common, no matter their ethnicity or background. The artist took inspiration from those who passed through the intersection, which reminded him of the tradition of weaving. This multi-cultured practice is reflected in the design of the mural in the various diagonal lines.
