I saw this going by on a street car. It was very high up.
Definitely a large billboard size, I wondered if it was maybe going to be a beer ad, but something felt different than advertising.
I returned 3 weeks later, and no, no ad. It’s art, by one of my absolute faves, Jarus.
Extremely difficult to capture with my camera phone.
I adore the sky blue background, the blue shirt several shades a darker sky blue, the blue grey of the painted cement he sits on, and the green trees in the distance darkened by blue. The painting seems part of the sky and of earth, all at the same time.

This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing it. 🙂
You’re welcome! The street art just gets better every year! 😀
Great mural, Resa, and you did a wonderful job of photographing it. I like the close-ups with the detail, but that penultimate photo does a superb job of giving the big picture of the art on the street. I find it amazing that those geometric shapes in the shirt sleeve and face translate at a distance into shirt wrinkles and face shadows…says a lot about the skill of the artist.
Thanks Jet! Also thanks for teaching me a new word – penultimate –
Jarus is amazing skilled. I’ve adored his work for years, and it’s always an excitement to find a new piece.
He is beautiful, Resa; I think there’ll be a lot of love for this one! 🙂
I adore this piece. Toronto artists are going wild painting right now, and it’s so exciting. It’s like watching the Art crop come in. 😀
Simplistically beautiful … or is it beautifully simplistic? Either way … I like it and it’s seems to be in a good location.
I agree.the artist has played to the location.
OMG that was fantastic. I love the color they used for blue. It’s so beautiful. Great street art.
I agree! I found another batch today. The art never seems to end….. for now.
Just love this ❤
It’s pretty great! ❤
Love it!. The expression in his face is so well achieved. Great finding, my friend. Hugs & happy weekend ⭐
It’s by of of my fave artists. He does a lot of faces, and he’s one of the best I’ve seen on large scale! Happy weekend! ⭐
It is wonderful Resa, you captured the chills as well. i keep seeing blue. I love blue! 🙂
Blue is a wonderful color! It’s calming and honest! 😀
Yay for it NOT being an ad 🙂 Instead, it’s a spotlight on artwork – and you caught it nicely with your camera phone. I understand the angle wasn’t optimal given how high up it is but you did great showing it to us 🙂 I like the contented look on the man’s face.
Yay! It really is an amazing work by Jarus! 😀 The look on the guys face is how I figured the name for this one. 😀 That new Art Gown is keeping me from my blog life, but oh well!
I am excited for your gown revealing ahead and that you’re enjoying life 🙂
I think you are enjoying life, too! I count my lucky stars every day to be a Canadian! xo
Another great find! I like all those shades of blue and the sparkle in his eyes.
It really is a fab work of art. I’ve got so much art to publish, but not enough time. Hope all is well for you!
You should make a scrapbook of all the photography you have taken throughout the years. This photo shot is fantastic and beautiful. 🙂
So realistic ! Love it !
I hope you are having a lovely weekend dear Resa.
Big hug. Ralph xoxoxo ❤
