Liberty Cat Mural

Thank you Georgiann! Your “Chicklets” and poems were a Kids’ Month highlight!

Artist: Jarus

OMG!  Emmanuel Jarus is absolutely one of my top 5 street artists, and this work is his.

Artist: Jarus

I read on Georgiann’s blog, Rethinking Life, that she liked snuggling up with a nice hot drink, a good book and a cat. I don’t see the book, but the sentiment remains.

This mural, in Liberty Village Toronto, is seen best from about a block away. Please… click on the pic below to see how gorgeous it is!

The Artist:

It is definitely Jarus. I couldn’t find a signature. It could be behind a car.

This blows up nice, too!

Bees – Their 11th Hour

Without bees, there may be no time left for life.

Artist: Nick Sweetman

Butterflies, hummingbirds & wind also pollinate, but bees do the lions’ share. Click on the next 2 images, & see bees working in all their glory.

At first, when I saw this mural on Queen East, I thought “Gorgeous”!

Artist: Nick Sweetman 

Immediately thereupon, I wondered why the artist had a clock set at 11:00, & gears in the mural with the bees?

Artist: Nick Sweetman

Then it hit me!

Bees, & all pollinators are dying off due to pesticides & herbicides. It is their 11th hour. After discussing this with Marina Kanavaki, she made up her April’s clock read 11:00 for this post.

 On Art Towards A Happy Day Marina spreads the importance of all life on the planet. If you click on her clock, bees will fly you to its original “Diamond Four” artwork.

So, let’s view this mural’s details from left to right.

Artist: Nick Sweetman

Hello! Don’t bee afraid of me! I’m pollinating for you!

There was a shadow growing across the smaller right side of the mural.

Artist: Nick Sweetman

I feel it is nature adding her own poetry. (blows up nicely)

Artist: Nick Sweetman

When I looked across the street, I saw that the clock & a bee were reflected in the windows of a library.

Artist: Nick Sweetman

I see time & the bee, melting …. fading away.

Artist: Nick Sweetman

I think that I shall never see, a mural pretty as a bee! (TY, Joyce Kilmer!)

Click on the S6 Logo & the bees will fly you to Marina’s boutique. I’ve bought tights, a clock, travel mugs & make-up bags, all with Marina’s art on them. The quality is very good. Keep an eye out for discounts & free shipping!

Jarus Man

In Graffiti Alley, the plaster cracks can’t hide his beauty.
