Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
I heard of an interesting mural. When I got there, the building was torn down, & new construction underway.
I wandered lonely as a cloud, through high-rises and their lanes.
I turned into a parking lot, and found art performance fame.
High-rises, and the areas they are located in, are not prime street art venues.
Look how high up (about 18 stories) & huge this beauty is!
Did the best I could with my Iphone camera.
Two days later, and I’m still feeling the find.

The Artist is unknown to me, at this time.
This mural looks freshly done, so a plaque might be going up soon.
Direct from Manchester, UK; courtesy of Alex Morris via Professional Moron is this fabulous wall art of a Blue Tit, by Sarah Yates.
“This piece was commissioned in 2011 by Converse as part of the Wall to Wall project. Sarah Yates is an illustrator focusing on topics of environmental awareness. She is well known for mixing graffiti with graphic design and taking inspiration from nature, especially from birds, which are her favourite subjects, as we can see in this large-scale mural depicting a large blue tit.”
🌼Humungous thank you’s to Alex for the Blue Tit!🌼

A new Indigenous inspired mural, by Philip Cote, graces my hood; the Village of Roncesvalles.
A new to me song, by Buffy Saint Marie & throat singer Tanya Tagaq, graces my spirit. You Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind) is the most powerful song I’ve ever heard.
I’M BLOWN AWAY
Roncesvalles was originally settled by Colonel Walter O’Hara in 1850. O’Hara (Irish), a soldier in the British army was captured by the French in the Roncesvalles Gorge in Spain; hence the name Roncesvalles.

The Artist: Philip Cote
Buffy, a multi-media artist, rose to prominence in the late 60’s, with the folk music movement. However, once she began using her voice to support native causes, her songs were censored in the USA, and yanked from playlists.
Someone said (paraphrasing) It’s amazing how afraid powerful men in suits are, of a girl with a guitar.
This is the second Frida Kahlo piece I’ve found.
I met the artist, Anya, while traversing alleys and parking lots. OMG! She was so neat. She spent time chit-chatting with me.
She said the art would be done by Thursday end. She had another art engagement on Friday. I didn’t think Anya & MSKA, who was assisting with B.G., would make the date. Wednesday rained all day.
She showed me the self portrait she was basing this mural on.
LOVE the hand/glove earrings!!!
I went back Sunday. It’s not quite finished, but I shot it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get back there.
I adore the way she has Frida emerging out of the wings of a Monarch. When I returned, dumpsters had been moved in.
I shoot them as I get them.

Here it is in its entirety.
