ANDREW SCHOULTZ’S “THE WINDS ARE CHANGING” PRACTICALLY LEAPS OFF THE WALL

thewind1San Francisco’s ANDREW SCHOULTZ has created a stunning 100-foot-long mural at the corner of Howard Park and Dundas Street West.  “The Winds Are Changing”, partly sponsored by the City of TORONTO, and with an assist from artist, JEFF BLACKBURN, depicts an abstract landscape very much in motion.  “I try to use icons and imagery that, in a very vague sense, make note of what’s going on in the specific area I’m painting.”  In this particular neighbourhood, that means ‘gentrification’ and replacing the old with the new.  Or in Washington DC it could mean something else entirely.
