Cash Akoza has taken First Nations style art to a new horizon.
In an older, drab area of Winnipeg, Cash has added color and theme & brightened it up for all the kids who live there.
There are 5 painted walls, all in small area between a street and an alley. It’s a place where a lot of kids live. This one of the walls.
Click on the above pic to see the mural in all its glory, and it is glorious!

Gorgeous work. It reminds me of the Aztec inspired mural art in San Francisco’s Mission District.
That’s very interesting. I’ll have to look it up on Google!
Very colourful and really brightens up the area (a bit like you dear Resa 😉 )
Luv & Ugs. Ralph xoxox ❤
Yeah… I’m a brightener! 😀 ❤ xoxo
Dazzling ! 😎 xoxox ❤
I think it’s pretty wonderful, too!
A tribute to the native Indians of the area in a way kids world love it. Cheers tot he colors and the details.
It is a great tribute! 😀
The kids (and adults) must love this work. The colors are so vivid and the work so beautiful and meaningful.
I’ll eventually show all of the pieces in this little area. I thought of Kids’ Month the moment I laid eyes on it. How could I not have a KM, when I keep finding Street Art for them. Later, tonight is a wolf from a garage door here.
Christy B. wrote a poem for KM using it. I’ll reblog!
I feel like a kid in a candy store!
A very special tribute – this is a wonderful find. Celebrating all kids ~ Happy Sunday to you Resa.
Happy Sunday!!! Sunday is a good day for being a kid.
A new level is right! The style reminds me so mouch of Norval Morrisseau. Beautiful colors.
Yes, I’m so glad you see that! Excuse me, looking up Norval Morrisseau, now!
Very Aztec inspired and wonderfully captured art. 🙂
It is interesting how the aboriginal arts resemble each other, from Canada’s First Nations, to American First Nations, to Aztec, to Mayan, to Inca inspired.
It seems many artists are now creating a new art to all of this inspiration. I just love it! 😀 x 😀
All tribes and cultures come to a connection that brings a memory of the roots of the people and what art brought everyone together. 🙂
I agree, Charlie! I shudder to think of life without creative expression. I suppose that would be mere existence.
You have a lovely mind, my friend!
