He is sensitive to western mass culture and the dehumanisation linked to our consumer society.

Artwork description

David Guinn and Phillip Adams used the fireworks, the Mount Royal tamtams and the crowds of festival-goers to capture summer in Montreal. Hot Summer Night is another mural in the series The Montreal Seasons located at Habitation Jeanne-Mance. The two first murals created in 2009 depict contemporary landscapes : the first, an autumn day ; the second, a dramatic winter scene. The common theme used in all works of art at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance (CHJM) is nature and vegetation. This artistic guideline was developed with the collaboration of the CHJM as part of a global improvement plan that aims to position the complex as the green heart of the downtown area.
