Kingsway Royal 1

It’s a nostalgic mural of the Kingsway Royal York area, in an underpass.

Artist: Emilia Jajus

Let me back up to the beginning. It starts with a park.

This mural is not quite 3 years old, and already the rain run-off has left its marks.

The park is at the entrance to the tunnel.

When we enter the tunnel, there is a street with a theater,

  1. This is beautiful wall art and your photos are perfect. I actually think that time and rain has made this even more amazing . The old theatre with hr antique (now) car out front is my favorite in this collection. This is gorgeous art and you have captured it perfectly as you always do . Hats off to Resa, and this artist. For capturing these scenes for us. 🤗♥️

    1. I adore the old theater and car piece. Perhaps it is my fave of this 4 part mural, but there is more great stuff to come! So happy you like it, Holly! 😀 ❤

    1. She’s roaming through the area, putting the past’s pieces together with her art. There are 3 more posts on this underpass, 3 more pieces.

    It does give me that nostalgic feeling. Love the Canada geese, children playing in the rain and the classic car. Thanks for taking us there with your photos! xoxo

    1. You’re welcome!! I got a notice that “Desi” is coming out in a few days! I’ll probably get the ebook, as I haven’t worked in a bit! xoxo

        Resa, you’re the best! It’s only available as an ebook right now anyway because it’s just a short novella. I might release the whole series later as a print book. xoxo

  3. This is wonderful. The kids play in the puddles, all the shops. the beautiful park…and I love the way he’s pointing at something in the water. The geese are beautiful. What a colorful and beautiful mural.

    1. I fell in love with it the second I saw it! The nostalgia factor is a wow! There’s 3 more parts to it.
      I probably started with the best part, but it all depends on how one thinks.

    1. I walk through alleys. I take public transport to places in the city that I haven’t been, and walk through the streets and alleys. I bump into artist while they are painting, and talk to them. They tell me places to go. Sometimes when I am in a vehicle on my way somewhere, I’ll spot some art. Then, I go back to find it when I have a day off. More often than not, if there is 1 piece of art, there will be more. Toronto is filled with public art. People are very proud of it!

      1. You go through quite a bit to share these treasures with us. Thank you so much for your efforts. They are appreciated. On.a different subject, you have posted anything else on the other blog. I haven’t seen any notifications.

        1. Not since Athena Graffiti Goddess. The Art Gowns take from 3 to 6 months each to make. After I finish an Art Gown, I get a crash/down feeling. I need several weeks to chill. Then I start another one. I will do some in between posts, such as reblogs that are in the gown theme… somehow. Sometimes I get to put one on a model, then that gets posted. I’m hoping to shoot Athena on a model.
          Right now I have been getting some of my Art Gown pics printed & mounted on canvas. I am in the process of painting over them with iridescent acrylics. I’m hoping to do a gallery show. Either way, eventually I will make a post of that.
          Thank you for asking!!!!

    1. It really is a very pretty city, especially with all of the public art, and so much nature. I only wish they would save more old architecture.

Speak your art mind!
