Second Stories

Second Stories

This mural is meant to look back on a time where many families would live on the second level of the building within their own business. This is less common now due to the emergence of the suburbs, yet mixed use buildings are reappearing due to urban densities in certain areas.

Kind of Blue

Kind of Blue

Huge thank you to @kj.bit for putting on an amazing Mentor and Mentee mural jam in Oct 2021.

This is the garage I got and I immediately saw a piano. I wanted to transform the windows into black keys that glow at night. It is a whimsical play on a jazz pianist.

The Optical Illusion Box

The Optical Illusion Box

From 1 specific vantage point, this box turns into an optical illusion. Once a solid grey, 4-sided structure, it now looks like an open frame revealing the trees that used to be hidden behind. Framing a section of nature in this way, brings a heightened sense of awareness and appreciation for the natural landscape around us. Additionally, as the seasons and climate changes, summer can still be enjoyed—and nature preserved—inside this box at Eglinton Flats.

To see the illusion, stand on the red arrow (the vantage point) by the crosswalk. Aim your camera at the box and move it up and down until the edges of the actual sidewalk lines up with the edges of the painted sidewalk on the box. Voila!

Architecture Scolaire

Architecture Scolaire

Produced by MU, the mural Architecture scolaire was created by Roadsworth and painted with the collaboration of 20 students (secondary 3, 4 and 5), and Isabelle Duguay (art educator) and William Patrick (assistant muralist).

Ode to traditional school supplies, the artwork now indicated in a playful way the students entry to St.Laurent High School.

Pursuing the space exploration defining his work, Roadsworth used by the concrete architecture of the arch to create illusions with actual proportions but giant format supplies.
