Completed underpass mural by artist Nick Sweetman on the Bathurst-Wilson Underpass with the help of Bacon, Omen, and Wales. Nick's design was selected out of the five shortlisted artists for representing the diverse community demographics without using cultural symbols or human figures - like many of the families in this community, each group of animals comes from Russia, Israel, the Philippines or Canada (to catch everyone else). Though the different animal families come from different places, they can recognize a familiar face in one another. The background, inspired by coloured inks dissolving into water, represents how each individual brings their own colourful flair to the mixture, making for a vibrant community when all these colours interact and start to flow together.
