Winnipeg –  2006 Mural of the Year.

Jill Sellers was kind enough to provide photos of this 92 x 50 ft. mural taken when it was new.

My eye is drawn to smaller detail, of which there is plenty in this stunning mural. So I have kept some of my shots, taken years later when the mural had faded.

145 Market Street – As a clothing designer, this detail is especially pleasing to me.

Although Jill Sellers was the original conceptual artist she needed help to pull this off & insists the amazing artists, who contributed a lot, be duly credited.

  1. Beautiful, and you can see something you could not see there in Winnipeg in the mid eighties…of course there weren’t many murals, and the outside coffee with with access to the street showned in the murals weren’t allowed, a shock for a poor Montrealer moving there…and bars were closing at 1 o’clock, another shock, but I did manage to survive…:) too bad there wasn’t all that artwork on the street, or maybe I was passing them by without noticing, I doubt that…:)

    1. It seems to me the art in the street art began later in the 1990’s.
      “lol” re: the bars closing at 1. Last Call is still 1 in Toronto.

      Where did you go to school there?

      1. Actually I was there 4 years from 1982 to 1986, I was hired by Environment Canada, the only requirements were to have a diploma in engineering and be a french speaking person willing to expatriate to learn english and help growing the number of bilingual civil servants, after a year I was transferred in another service, a post requiring only english, so I was more ‘bilingual’ than all officially bilingual civil servants there, but I wasn’t getting the bonus in $$ to be bilingual…funny, especially when I was talking to those officially bilingual employees, we have to talk in english to have a decent conversation…it was really funny, but I like it there, but after 4 years I quit to job to go traveling a whole year in western Europe, and when I came back, I did hesitate a bit but came back to Montreal, anyway I did not took a leave I did quit the job, so I had no job waiting for me in either place…would have been quite different I think If I would have stayed there, maybe I would be a known artist…in Winnipeg, seems to me that often artist will be known outside their own place, anyway I came back here…

          1. Yes Maamm!…:D, most of the time I hold to one line…not regret anything, did not paint much today but it was a good day…nothing in particular just little things going nice now…have to take it when it comes…:)
