New Toronto mural looks to the future

eventscapemural1 Architectural fabrication firm Eventscape recently commissioned artist El Mac’s first Toronto mural for its facility adjacent to the Gardiner Expressway. Titled ‘To the Future,’ the 139-m2 (1,500-sf) piece depicts a face appearing to stare at traffic along the highway.

Eventscape, known for many signage-related projects of its own, hopes the piece will become a public art landmark for the city. El Mac, whose real name is Miles MacGregor, collaborated with two Canadian contemporary artists, Montreal’s Stare and Toronto’s Kwest, to paint the mural on a 4.3 x 30.5-m (14 x 100-ft) exterior wall surface.
