A statement from the artist:
This project struck my interest as an illustrator born and raised in the city of Mississauga – where I literally grew up watching Mississauga evolve from a small city to the metropolitan downtown it has become. I’ve always admired the sense of community Mississauga has maintained over the years, and saw this project as an amazing outlet to communicate this evolution of my hometown.
The banners explore the transformation of urban spaces and community spaces through a lens of futurism by way of Mississauga’s diversity. The banner concepts and designs relay this interconnectedness through illustrative digital collages that abstractly showcase how Mississauga will grow and interact with our lived experiences.
