This section of the cycle track stretches North from the bridge over the 401 on both the East and West side to just south of Auto Mall Drive on Conlins Road.
This cycle track project was organized by StreetARToronto. The theme was dissolved from community engagement and feedback surveys conducted by StreetARToronto within the Meadoway and Conlins Road communities.
Montreal-based artist Dodo Ose painted this mural on the side of Civic Auto for the 2022 Nelson International Mural Festival.
“DODO lives his Art as a great adventure, where one feeds the other and vice versa.
His painting is the reflection of His experience. He is a visual poet whose mission is to break the boundaries between dreams and realities. It remains optimistic and aims to hold the viewer’s attention to direct him to a moment of reflection, like he is living a daydream.It’s also a way to transpose emotions by creating a bridge between conscious and unconscious.”
“This mural is inspired by Toronto, Canada and Mother Nature. On the front there is a mountain in the shape of Mother Nature’s face, she is smiling and resting peacefully with flowers and trees all over her. Her hair wraps to the right side, transforming into a flow of lines, swirls and more flowers. Toronto’s famous white squirrel is there as well. She is munching on an acorn and being as cute as she always is. Summer scenario on the front is changing into Autumn, as the mural wraps to the left. There are maple and oak leafs flying through the sky. It moves into a night, where floral design frames a special guest, Racoonie. He is startled to be caught playing with a little yellow duckie, a reference to the World’s largest rubber duck’s appearance in Toronto, 2017. This is a little tribute to it, since it wasn’t able to return to Toronto this year.”
Vicky Bilbily’s ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Bell Box displays the glass-covered interior of a robot’s brain and forehead, presumably asleep. The robot’s large eyes are open, looking to the left of the viewer, but their brain – a light blue semicircle circle – is filled with ten sheep connected to each other with a dark blue lines. The robot’s brain is connected to their body with light blue lines, reminiscent of a circuit board.
