Butterfly Laneway 2019 Garage Door Murals

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 !

Chesterfield Mural

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…🦋
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.


Meaghan Claire Kehoe Mural

This artist goes by MCK Studios for her full name is Meaghan Claire Kehoe. She does some amazing work.

J'ai fini! "Same Love" a tribute to a family of three beautiful ladies. The two featured on the pink side just got married this week and I just can't believe there are still places where some people can't marry the one they love and have devoted their whole life to. The love is the same. Is it really so hard to believe that with all the diverse shapes and colours and sizes humans come in, that we may also be born different on the inside too? My hope with this tribute is just to bring imagery like this more into the mainstream. To normalize it. This isn't meant to be risqué or shocking and I'm relieved that most people walking by as I worked had only one comment. "That's beautiful." Warm smiles and appreciation. Diversity is still prevalent and respected my most in Canada, but we are wrong to think the shocking behaviour of our neighbours down south stops dead at the border. I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunities I've had, but I can not be ignorant to others' ignorance. I'm not great with words and I may not have the guts to be an activist on the front lines, but perhaps my art can heal hearts or support silently. That's my piece for now. To learn more about this family, check out @meaghanpeckham beautiful professional photography. It'll make your heart melt. #samelove #streetart #artist #toronto #underpasspark #twoladiesandababy #mixedracechildren #malato #photography #wip #process #spraypaint #mtn #montanablack
