Based on sketches the artist made during his travels on the Toronto subway, Anonymous Somebody tells the stories of the Bloor West Village in a series of brightly colored murals. Celebrating the colorful individuals we meet on our daily commutes, these murals celebrate the past, present and future of a diverse community.
Themes of memory, healing and celebration invite passengers to contemplate their own daily journeys and the people they meet along the way.
The artist's painting were sublimated onto ALTO™ aluminum, which will resist environmental damage in this high-traffic station where temperature changes and vibrations are the norm.
