Indigenous artist Randy Knott created this mural in honour of the Indigenous people who once inhabited or visited the area around the Scarborough Bluffs.
Using the input and suggestions of community members, the artists developed a concept and ultimately created a mural depicting the stages of art. This mural depicts western prehistoric people first murals, a Greco-Roman sculpture, baroque and impressionist pieces and graffiti.
Utilizing suggestions from the community and historical information, the three artists collaborated to create this mural which begins in rural Agincourt, continues through the present and extends in to the future, depicted by a mass of fibre optic cables.
The approach of this mural adopted a “super-hero” interpretation of Article 7. The design depicts the beneficial rule of law as heroic armoured figures; these archetypes personify the liberating, civilising and protective aspects of a just legal tradition.
This mural depicts life's natural cycles and the human journey, incorporating a flow of figures, birds, fish and natural elements swirling within its borders.
Created by artist Jim Bravo and photographer Kate Young, “Impressions” consists of over 500 photographs installed on tree planters along Jameson Avenue from Queen Street West to Springhurst Avenue in Toronto’s Parkdale community.
