I’m glad the mural has become a cultural phenomenon, but I’m still very proud of what we created.
“It is a tribute to the city’s diversity,” says John Ainsworth, the artist behind the mural.
I am very proud that the mural is not for us.” “
I am proud to have done it.
I am very proud that the mural is not for us.”
Ainswill’s mural in the city limits to one metre by one metre and has a six-foot-high canvas wall that features two women and a man, each wearing a red dress and a white blouse.
It’s a nod to Toronto’s vibrant multicultural heritage, and the mural serves as a reminder of diversity and acceptance, he says.
Ainswaives that it’s a work of art and doesn’t represent the entire city.
It also serves as an opportunity for a wider conversation about what it means to be a Torontoan, he adds.
“This is the first time we have a mural of two women in one space, in one neighbourhood.
It is a huge cultural statement that we have this mural.”
A photo of the mural, posted to Facebook by Toronto Public Library, shows a black woman with long dark hair in a pink dress.
The women are wearing red dress shirts, black pants and shoes, with the two men in white shirts and dark pants.
The men’s faces are obscured by masks.
“There are so many people of colour in this city,” says Ainsweg.
“And it is not just the young people, it is the older people too.”
The mural has also been viewed more than 10,000 times on Facebook.
A study released last year found that Toronto is the city with the most diverse neighbourhoods in Canada, with a population of more than 4 million.
The research found that, across Toronto, there are approximately 30 different ethnicities, ranging from mixed-race families to single-parent families.
It found that while Toronto is a predominantly white city, the city has also become more diverse over the past few decades.
More than 25 per cent of the city population is of African descent.
In 2014, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) called for the creation of a museum dedicated to showcasing Toronto’s multicultural heritage.
The museum will be built on the former site of the Toronto Zoo, which is currently being converted into a park and a playground.
“At a time when our city is undergoing a crisis of its own, it’s really important to celebrate this beautiful and unique multicultural heritage and to build on it,” said Toronto Mayor John Tory in a statement.
A spokesperson for the City of Toronto says the city was not contacted by Ainswill before the mural was unveiled.
“Our city is committed to supporting all individuals and communities who wish to express their individuality, and this mural reflects that,” says spokeswoman Mariam Al-Shabab.
“The city does not discriminate against anyone.
Diversity is a core value for our city, and it is important to remember that this is a city of immigrants, of refugees, of Muslims and Christians, of all different backgrounds.”
The City of London is also a multicultural city.
A number of other Canadian cities have also added to their mural wall and are planning to do so in the future.
“To be a part of that is really, really special,” says Artistic Director and mural artist Mark Zuckerman.
“If we all get together, we can do this.
We can be a melting place and that’s what I think the city should do.”
