A giant squid painted on the side of Merivale Fish Market

Giant Squid

Artist: Alyssa Longchamps

1480 Merivale Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2E6Z5

Alyssa Longchamps, 26, is usually tattooing humans with her unique style of black and white art but for the last couple of weeks she has been spray painting a giant 14′ x 38′ squid on the outside wall of the Merivale Fish and Seafood Grill on Merivale Road. A friend of the owners, she was asked if she could come up with a design that would celebrate the seafood nature of the business and after some thought, she sketched up the squid. She took a week off from tattooing at her private studio, “The Static Lab”, and battled the brutal heat and thunderstorms and recently finished the project. “It was a lot of fun, I’m pretty excited about it. I don’t know if I’ll do more (because) it’s been pretty time consuming, but I definitely enjoyed it,” she said.

Cellular to Stellar

Artist: Emily Rose Michaud

3 Route Principale Ouest, Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, Québec J0X 2W0, Canada

A series of murals were made to ask questions about our experience: Emily Rose Michaud’s mural was installed at Sainte-Cécile de Masham’s Elementary School. The mural provoked reflection on a series of questions to which the public was invited to respond. Two science and health professionals – a data scientist and a health advisor on COVID – developed the questions. A QR code displayed on the murals then directed the public to a web platform with the questions to solicit answers.

Look in the mirror, YOU are the future of the black community!
