Coming very soon – a brightly coloured mural by Spanish street artist OKUDA, on a formerly blank wall, facing traffic-heavy Jarvis Street at Carlton. The project is a partnership between STEPS (a public art-funding charity), the City of TORONTO’s StreetART program, and the owners of Parkside Student Residences. The city will provide $50,000 as part of its Graffiti Management Plan.
Upon completion, the mural will look like this.
The Residences are housed in a former 1970’s-era Brutalist hotel, not far from the University of TORONTO, OCAD University, George Brown College and Ryerson University in or near downtown.
