Well known for his male characters, this piece is a milestone of his career and one of Smithe’s biggest murals located in his hometown. “Ella” is the title of the piece, which means “She” and portrayed the side face of a lady as a homage to all the hardworking, strong and independent women out there. – Enriqueta Arias | Photo credit: Francisco Betanzos

Pangeaseed – A Love Letter to the Great Lakes

A Love Letter to the Great Lakes mural festival in Toronto was the first fresh water edition of PangeaSeed Foundation’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project, which aims to bring awareness to issues surrounding our water resources, their inhabitants and those who depend on them. This week of art and activism was a collaboration with Hermann & Audrey, Montreal artist Jason Botkin and an amazing group of organizers and change makers to create large scale public art in the form of murals in the theme of fresh water protection, centred around the neighbourhoods of Queen West and Ossington Ave, Queen West and Spadina Ave, and the lower Don River.

As part of our contribution to Toronto’s first ever large scale mural festival, we present our own love letter to the lakes, the artists, and all involved in making this project a reality. Please enjoy.
