The giant on the right comes from a land of mass consumption and waste. His body is made-up of junk, trash and random man-made objects. He feels burdened by the weight of his load and feels stress and fear because of it. The giant on the left is showing compassion for her new friend. She comes from a land of green space and an abundance of nature. Her body is made-up of rivers, animals, and vegetation. As a gesture of support and understanding, she calmly puts her hand on the other giant’s shoulder. He’s feeling a little nervous about the change, but a positive transition begins to spread- a change that shares a common ground between the two. Their faces come together and form a complete circle, because they are in harmony with each other.
This mural won an award of excellence from The City of Edmonton. The ceremony was at a gala in City Hall, November 10th, 2011.

A New Gallery Beneath Paris [underground art]

There is nothing I love more than underground culture, where art and creativity furnishes in the dimness of an urban city. Paris, the octopus of asphalt and chaos and smelly expensive cheese, underground art sees light in the darkest places. This work is a collaboration of several gorilla and none gorilla artists. This is formless free art that will remain for years and years snoozing under Paris for the discovering of wandering  souls.

” Imagine walking with a flashlight through this tunnel of darkness and discovering the 12 foot high stencil portrait by hometown Street Art star C215 as it hovers slightly above you. The large grizzled face looms as a memory, perhaps a miner or a railroad worker, with one eye closed, or missing. Maybe he is wincing at you because of the thick dust in this airless tunnel ”.
