Illumnaata “All Together”

Ottawa School of Art’s Community Mural Celebration

Illunaata, meaning “all together” in Inuktituk, is a celebration of Canadian imagery and community through the medium of paint. To mark this momentous year, The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) partnered with Ottawa 2017, Ottawa Community Housing (OCH), and the Embassy of Imagination (EOI) to create a series of murals that are universally accessible, promote diversity, respect, positivity, and speak to OSA’s motto, “Teaching Art to everyone” by sharing art with everyone!

I was so honoured to be asked to lead one of the murals for this project. Thank-you to my assistant, Jasmine, and to the youth from the neighborhood for all your hard work in helping me paint this wall. A special thanks to the Ottawa School of Art and the Lowertown community for giving me this opportunity and to my partner in crime for helping me paint, carry, and push my scaffolding around!

Thank-you to friends, family, and community members and representatives for coming to the unveiling, I had a wonderful time! …And for the cake, the cake was delicious 😛
