Butterfly Laneway 2019 Garage Door Murals
Another butterfly mural collection from Nick Sweetman’s Laneway Project for David Suzuki Foundation. I will post some more of these but as I explained earlier there were a lot of murals. Generally, these projects have around 30 artists painting over the weekend. It’s a lot to take in because there is so much art going on at the same time !
This is an artist who goes by Chesterfield that I had not heard of before. Nick likes to give new artists exposure with his project which is refreshing. He seems to be a graffiti artists and he is trying something different as he explained on his Instagram.
And now for something COMPLETELY different…🦋Instagram
Huge thanks to @nick_sweetman, laneway residents, and @davidsuzukifdn for trusting me to step out of my comfort zone and try something I’ve never really attempted before. Letters and steel is always fun, but can be challenging to develop new skills or techniques when dodging workers and locs in a 24-hour yard 😅 Hope you enjoy your new garage door
Leyland Adams Mural
This artist has organized a few different projects on his own including some gallery shows. This was the first time I have seen Leyland Adams painting. All the other times I have only seen the finished work.
My work is a physical representation of my inner most thoughts, dreams and perceptions. The reason I continue to create work is because it’s the only real tangible way that I’m able to express myself. Art was my first true love and it helped me through hard times and rough circumstances. I create work with the intention to speak to and inspire my community with the hope that it will help to expand their consciousness. I use the art of calligraphy and the structure of typography to make visual poems painted on walls and found objects.leylandadams.com
