Artwork description

The mural was created as a result of the Plan de développement urbain, économique et social (PDUES) which was a response to the échangeur Turcot reconstruction project and as part of efforts to revitalize rue Notre-Dame. This is the second mural related to this project; the first was by Nélio, created in 2017 at 4030 rue Notre-Dame.

MU’s mural project is very impressive, due to its size, the monumental scale of the portrait and the technical mastery evident; it leaves no one indifferent. CASE (Andreas Von Chrzanowski) chose to represent the paradoxical relationship connecting humans to nature, by focusing, as he often does, on a hand; everyone can understand the gesture it is making. By taking a local person as model, his work is even more embedded in the district in which it is located.
