Does someone have the background on this piece?
Can't wrap my head around it.
I recognize it, but I don't know if it's because I saw a photo or if it was installed in another location. It's a collaborative piece done in 2012 by VV's favourite muralist Gilroy, who also created the masterpiece Lecherous Grandpa, which we all knew so well.
As part of the association’s Art History 150 project, artist Steve Milroy designed a scaled version of the mural, Justice.
He then split the art into 120 individual two-foot-by-two-foot panels, which will be presold for $50 and can be painted by the donor – or assigned to an artist – creating a unique mosaic.
Once complete, the mural will be installed at 533 Chatham St.
Not that I expect redevelopment to happen on the adjacent property to the south anytime soon, but wouldn't this mural likely be hidden if that were to happen? It probably should have been installed at the top floor for a better chance of longevity and better overall visibility.
