Hajra

Artist: Khaula Mazhar

680 Rexdale Boulevard, Etobicoke, ON, Canada

This mural is part of the Womxn Paint 2021 North Etobicoke project themed around resilience. Since the neighbourhood has a large population of immigrants, South Asians in particular, I used an image of a young South Asian woman in her traditional attire appreciating nature. Adjusting to her new world, like so many immigrant women she is naturally resilient and looks for something familiar to give her hope and strength.

Evansburg Mural

Artist: Brie Adkins

5107 50 Street, Evansburg, Alberta, Canada

In partnership with Telus Painting the Pembina 2.0 was launched. Same as in 2020, each business or person that donated over $20 has their name on a plaque. This time we raised an extra $1300 for each of the 3 Pembina Schools for their Arts Program. The mural itself is an acronym – Each letter contains pieces of the town as it is or historically that correlates with the letter. The humming bird represents Telus, and the snail shows a slower pace of life. The letters were brush painting, the critters aerosols. Again I am honored to have such a supportive community that helps me realize these projects.

These artworks share first person perspective stories that speak to the rich ongoing history of the site as home to many diverse plant and animal species and cultural communities, beginning with the Indigenous peoples of Tkaronto and Turtle Island. The Lansdowne Underpass Art Project creates a collaborative artwork that honours this site by telling stories of those who have and continue to live on, play on, build community on, struggle on, learn from, grow in, paint, immigrate to, contribute to, and tend to this land.
