This mural was part of the Outside The Box 2020 program affiliated with the city of Toronto and organized through Street Art Toronto where artists apply with their design to paint a utility box in the city. My design was inspired by the beautiful stained glass on houses in Toronto, particularly in the west end of the city.

As a proud Torontonian living in the west end, I enjoy walking the quiet residential streets and admiring the older, more charming homes of Toronto. Being a big fan of fine craftsmanship and vintage design, I like to imagine living in the city during the Victorian times without condo buildings, cookie cutter houses, and uninspired architecture. Over the years I have been collecting photos of these beautiful and intriguing houses in our city and am constantly looking back at them for inspiration with the intricate details, interesting materials and illuminating stained glass windows. This design was born as homage to Toronto's historical homes and their timeless stained glass windows. The intention is to add a little more charm to the city with this vibrant and captivating modern-meets-traditional design.
