“Piliriqatigiingniq is a pillar of Inuit traditional knowledge”
It means to work together towards a common goal.
This mural is a collaboration of Nunavit youth artists and graduates of the Toronto’s Oasis Skateboard Factory.

HI SISTERS ! HERE SOME COLORFUL WALLS TO ENJOY YOUR COLORFUL FEELINGS THROUGH THE CITY. BEST WISHES, DEAR!
Thank you for the reblog!
Dear Resa, I’m sorry for my delay. You’re so welcome. You ever have a wonderful beholding and you discover amazing Art on the walls of the cities.
Indeed colorful, but this one did grab me as others … probably requires a lot of thought. 😉
It has a great spirit to it! 😀
So glad you explained your headline dear Resa because when I saw it I thought, “Oh no, that wine must have been really strong !” lol
Big hug. Ralph xoxoxo ❤
I wish! LOL! Big Hug xoxoxo ❤

I agree, and I’m so happy I got to photograph it!
The most Avant garde graffiti I’ve ever seen. Love it. 🙂
Hello dear Charlie!
It really is unique, and it is filled with a great and good spirit!
(Just digesting your new poem before I comment on it!)
I find these images simplistic yet so metaphorical.. And that is a big reason why I adore them – they are more complex than they seem! ❤
Agree, they are more complex. They incorporate Inuit traditional lore and express much great spirit. I adore the Inuit man carrying the entire mural (the weight of the world he knows) on his back. ❤
So true about him “carrying the world” ~ and may we enjoy our part of the world today in this amazing country of ours ❤ Happy 150th to our Canada xx May your day be beautiful – like this artwork!
I’m in a white burnoose, sipping red wine prior to a fortunate dinner. I feel like Canada!
Haha – that’s wonderful! I wore a red Canada shirt, white shorts, and had my nails painted red and white ~ we showed true spirit xx
This is absolutely stunning dear Resa… One of my most recent favorite murals, for sure…
Sending much love!;) ❤
I’m very proud that our city commissioned this mural. 😀 I love Inuit art, and right now Canada is busy trying to reconcile with our First Nations, Inuit and Metis populations.
I found a Chichen Itza mural & a Taj Mahal mural. I wish I could find a Parthenon mural.
We did art…. could there be something in architecture?
Much love to you! ❤ xx
That is certainly eye catching! So much to it both new and old, I love the mix and the scale of it.
It’s a wonderful mural! I just love the Inuit person holding it all on his back. There is a lot of messaging in the “mix” of this mural!
Fantastic! Real! I LOVE these 😀
It is fantastic! So beautiful in real life! 😀
I bet! 🙂 Real life is always better than the photo, but the photo is also: YES! Thank you…
This one is very different. I like it!
We like it, too! We love Benji & Ms. Zulu.
We can hardly wait for us to get together in a post again!

Same here, XXX . The ZAB team.
This looks so crazy, I love it!
The crazy is the Inuit way of thinking combined with the ideas of contemporary street artists, and I love it , too!
Good to see there’s still Inuit culture alive in Canada. I studied the inland Inuits many years ago. Read Farley Mowat’s People of the Deer which moved me to find out more. As I understand it, the inland Inuits are extinct since the middle of the 1950s. Or maybe a few of them survived by joining the coast populations. I was glad to se your reminder of still living Inuit culture.
So colorful and meaningful! The art and the artists are special.
