As the director, Guy Maddin, did not want his portrait in the mural, Charlie Johnston represented the director from the rear.

A purple eye was inspired from a short film Maddin did on Odilon Redon. Unfortunately, a beer sign was affixed upon it!

      1. Not afraid at all. Firstly – because it was 2012, much safer world than today. Secondly – Morocco is by far the safest country in Africa. And it still is. In any case, I am not afraid of any terrorists, because if something is going to happen, it will happen anyway. I prefer to take this risk, than to watch my back all the time 🙂

    1. Gimli is a very sweet place, good beach & lots of fun…except during the week when the fish flies lay eggs & then all die. The town is blanketed in them & they make a crunching noise when you walk anywhere. It’s one of those prehistoric prairie happenings!

  1. How rude to obscure such a fine
    piece of art with a beer sign, now
    that is highly disrespectful in my
    way of thinking. Getting away from
    the negativity in my comment I
    think that this artist has produced
    some superb artwork. I am of course
    impressed with the whole scene,
    but am drawn to the vampire, which
    looks awesome I must say 🙂 Well
    I am a sucker for vampires, if you
    will pardon the pun 😉 Have a lovely
    Thursday Resa and keep adding
    to your collection of graffiti artists,
    your taste is absolutely spot on 🙂
