Womxn Paint Toronto Laneway Project 2018

I’m going to quote from this article.. because there were so many artists participating in this project:

“Womxn Paint is transforming 4000+ square feet in the laneway north of Dundas St. West (between 136 McCaul Street and 39 D’Arcy Street) into a series of murals. Reflecting on the theme of “Uplifting Each Other,” twenty-nine emerging and established Toronto-based, female-identifying artists will turn the space into an outdoor art gallery for the entire neighbourhood to enjoy.

With support by StreetARToronto, Womxn Paint will feature work by Andrea Manica & Caitlin Taguibao, Aura & Chief Lady Bird, Bareket Kezwer, Christina Mazzulla, Cindy Scaife, Curtia Wright, Dezed, Diana Lynn, VanderMeulen, Erin McCluskey, Emily May Rose, Gosia Komorski, Jacquie Comrie, Jei Escalante, Kare, Lacey and Layla, Lauren Pirie, Monica Wickeler, Muisca, MSKA, Natalie Very B, Shelby McLeod, Tennille Dowers, The E.W.o.C. Project, TOEST and Wenting Li.”

Bareket Kezwer organized it last July and this August. She changed the named from “Women” to “Womxn” to be more inclusive.

I went 2 or 3 times to get some photos… but the first time I went.. I stuck in a ridiculous rainstorm. I had to take shelter at the AGO until it passed. When the storm ended I did get to see a rainbow and the art afterwards !

I’m just going to go alphabetical for the the sake of this post.. There’s some artists that I didn’t include.. but just because I didn’t get pictures of their art. I tend to get chatty during this projects and forget that I supposed to take pictures.. Oh well..

I guess this is apart of a larger project.

“The E.W.o.C. Project (Equity for Women of Colour) creates small-scale outdoor murals through Toronto. Proceeds from the murals are donated to organizations/charities involved in activism for marginalized groups on a local and global scale. ”
