The White Squirrels

There are white squirrels in Trinity – Bellwoods Park.

Apparently they are not a breed, but more like albino squirrels.

They have created more white squirrels.

Toronto is so proud of these rare beauties …

That we have named a street after them.

I have not seen one, but I don’t have hours to sit quietly, in a Squirrel Zen State, with a bag of peanuts. Although, it’s on my “To do list”.

Sath – Renaissance via Art

First things, first! Congratulations to Sath & Johanna!

They have created the most beautiful 👼 Lila 👼!

I’ve always believed Sath would be an amazing father. Much of his art is for kids & he teaches them through interactive art experience.

Two recent pieces Sath has done are collaborations with SIK. Above is Crow-n. I absolutely adore it. Below is a 21 second video of a mural with a big message about “the orangutans, the palm oil industry and the deforestation”

Check out the details of the mural from Sath & Sik!

“about one of the main causes of climate change. The logging and burning of forests by the timber industry, as well as by obtaining soil for agriculture and livestock are razing the lung of the planet and the species that live there.”

Above is ZoOrquesta Decoración” The slide show above is is filled with animal instruments Sath did for a Music School. La Escuela de Música local del @ajsonservera.

Dalmatian 103

Work done live during the last Nit de l’Art de Son Servera. As always, a real pleasure to paint in a place as magical as the Església Nova and see so many known people.”

What a fab frog! An animal may not be able to change its spots, but Sath can.

“I present to you Toni Serra, the student of Aproscom chosen through a draw to be the image of the 4th edition of the @proyecto.somriu.” SOM – RIU is a participatory mural project to aid people with intellectual disabilities.  Learn more! Visit a previous GLaM post: SOM – RIU.

My sincerest Thank You’s to Sath, for allowing me the privilege of of continuing to cover his career, in the world of art and humanities. Also, gratitudes to Johanna! Her ongoing work for our planet began with Greepeace, & now with an NGO called Compassion in World Farming. They are truly a Renaissance Couple! – Resa

Below is an interview with Sath. He’s that uber happy, proud daddy you see above.

Cutest Raccoon Ever

OMG! I stumbled upon an entertainment plaza made entirely out of shipping containers.

There’s shops for everything, small kiosks, restaurants and a beer hall+, park areas and more. The place has electricity and all the amenities.

There is art on everything! This project is still not finished.

Love this raccoon. Apparently, Toronto is the world’s Raccoon Capital!

Heading out to look for street art! See y’all later!

Hummmm

The colours are just gorgeous on this garage door Humming Bird.

The flowers, insects… beautiful.

The alley’s garage doors are an outdoor gallery.

This row is across form a park. Past the park, both sides of the alley are lined with art. Timothy says he’ll do a 360. Next alley, or this one when I get back to it, I will take the needed shots!

Princess Blue Holly – 2

Princess Blue Holly is the first Superhero who changes outfits, crime dependant!

Above: Princess Blue Holly avenges Crimes Against Animals in her Cat-O-Nine Tails ensemble. The 9 tails braid themselves into 1 tail in the back, when not in use. Best not to get lashed with a tail! The ends are equipped w/ spiny holly leaves & poison berries. Scratches, with berry juice seeping in, will make you see the light.

It all began with Crazy Free Art to music. I wanted to draw PBH, but she already has an outfit. I went renegade, & just did what I felt like. It’s scribbly, but we thought this could be an outfit to avenge Eco Crimes, Monsanto specifically!

Holly & I are working on PBH, together. Click on the poem, and visit her blog!

Below: Princess Blue Holly decks out for a night of fighting Crimes in a City’s Dark Corners. Rapists, muggers & murderers watch out! She’ll clean your clocks w/ titanium boots featuring retracting needles loaded with concentrated poison berry venom.

 Some may remember PBH’s original outfit. It’s her default essence, and some would say her “Robin Hood” look. She can fight any crime in this look, and win. Note the eyepatch!

PBH’s eyes are digitally engineered. This is part of her back story. That will be revealed in a future episode. Her eyepatches can see in the dark, can see lies, can see for miles & miles & more … but only 1 eye ability at a time. Hence different patches, on each eye.

Princess Blue Holly will need an anthem. Holly will write the words, eventually. The music will come from..??? Well, Rene Rosso (© Resa & Holly) will do the vocals!

In the meantime let’s use this poem By Leonard Cohen… “ANTHEM”

“There is a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in”

Great Performances

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.

This mural looks freshly done, so a plaque might be going up soon.
