C'est sur la façade sud de L'Édifice Cooper, située sur le boulevard Saint-Laurent à quelques centaines de mètres des lieux où Cohen a vécu et habités pendant plusieurs années que sera réalisée la murale sur 9 étages !
Happy birthday to David Suzuki! Thanks for being a leader in environmental protection, ecology, and teaching us about the nature of things! I painted this last summer with @loveletterprojects an initiative of @pangeaseed in #Toronto. Follow @davidsuzukifdn !! – #davidsuzuki #kevinledo #torontostreetart #muralism
Finished today! "Flow the Chi" is done with latex and spray paint, about 24 feet high. Despite the off and on rain, I managed to pull this off. This is painted directly on the Jardin Orange building where I am doing my art residency here in Shenzhen, China. If you look closely you can see two women sitting in the library on the bottom left. Thanks to @jardinorange for the hook ups, Feng Ya Ping for being my model and for @rlevices for helping me photograph her. – #kevinledo #etherealenergies #mural #muralism #art #spraypaint #aerosol #china #shenzhen #urbanart #JardinOrange #shenzhenstreetart #beautifulbizarre
I dove into a little bit of a different style with this mural, "Create Peace." The artwork ended up channeling a 1970s silkscreen poster design style, and this happened in a natural flow, without it being my initial intention. The piece was all done with brushes and rollers on a brick surface, and so I found it a better approach to use vectorized feel, which is a different technique to the smooth gradations of shadow that I normally do. The pronounced brick texture actually made it difficult to approach the piece as I normally do. Finally, the 8 point star that I painted can be found on the Guilford flag, a Greensboro historical flag which today is generally accepted as symbolic of the American Revolution. This use of the star is a total coincidence, as I didn't know anything about the flag when I planned out the design. Thanks again to @rockersprintshop x @cmykfestival for being me on to this project. – #kevinledo #etherealenergies #rockersprintshop #urbanart #greensboro #northcarolina #streetartusa #streetart #muralism #mural
