According to the Vancouver Mural Festival, artist duo Nelson Garcia and Xochitl Leal sought to beautify the campus space, utilizing the scale and visibility of the wall to bring to life an iconoclastic rendering of a renaissance painting of famous philosophers Plato and Socrates, injecting surrealism into the scene by transforming the main characters into various animals.
