Artwork description

The City of Pointe-Claire called upon the services of the MU organization to create a mural at the entrance of the Valois station pedestrian tunnel linking the north and south platforms. Launched after a call for proposals, the mural was intended to explore the theme of transportation, while highlighting the history of Pointe-Claire, whose development is directly related to the changing means of transportation. L’empreinte de l’homme, by artist Ilana Pichon, uses a graphic design on the tunnel entrance giving it a unique visual identity in an urban setting. The three-part mural tells the story of the human influence on the landscape: the first part represents our impact on the surrounding geography, the second moves at a slower pace to depict the notion of multiple interactions, while the third presents graphic elements based on the artist’s viewpoint of five means of transportation.
