Welcome to our Toronto Muralists blog
Hello and welcome to the first Toronto Muralists blog post!
Our goal for this blog is to give you a view into the world of murals and related arts. Through our extensive training and inherit artistic expertise, we see the world in a unique different way, much as everyone does in their own area of expertise. As a team of artists, our collective knowledge is wide and expansive and we enjoy sharing this information for people to learn and enjoy.
As mural artists, we have been trained in a wide range of artistic skills. For the most part, our artists have started their craft at a young age attending schools that complimented their zest for creativity. Our years of learning were completed in a large mixture of schools found in Toronto and the GTA. There are many talented and gifted art high schools in the city of Toronto including Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts, Central Technical art program and Etobicoke School of the Arts. These and many others are the places our foundational years of our artistry were formed, providing the growth and nurturing necessary to produce great and accomplished artists.
Our collective of artists have post-secondary training throughout the great province of Ontario and even further, from coast to coast. When it comes to Canada, there are many gifted artists and places to learn from them. In the city of Toronto, it would be hard to pick a college or university that we haven’t attended. Some of the larger and more prominent institutions are to name a few, OCAD, Sheridan, George brown, and Ryerson.
When it comes to creativity, it is important to know the elements of both art and design. Any great artist will be well versed in the skills that are important to their creative success. They will also have a yearning and understanding that acquiring the knowledge and learning other skill sets will benefit them. Thus, our artists possess backgrounds ranging from graphic design to hip hop art. It’s hard to find an avenue that we have explored.
A mural is a wonderful piece of art. It has a wide variety of connotations and different meanings. One strong aspect of a mural is a sincere commitment to those surroundings. It conveys a message that the place is important to you. Whether it’s a place of business, a school, a library, or your home a mural provides a heart touching element of uniqueness to any space it inhabits.
We plan to share a variety of unique articles and videos, not solely of our own content. The artistic community spans the globe, by utilizing modern day technologies we have been granted the ability to see the creative works and conceptions of a wide variety of artists internationally. We will share some of these works as we support both the artists and the life their ideas take on.
