Atlanta native and resident of Philadelphia, Phillip Adams holds a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from Philadelphia University. He is sensitive to western mass culture and the dehumanisation linked to our consumer society.

David Guinn was born and currently lives in Philadelphia. His architectural training influences his style that resembles a reproduction of pixel images. The cubist movement inspires him, especially Paul Klee. Guinn takes into account the immediate surroundings of the mural, the urban landscape, the colours and the residents as essential elements of his creation. He creates more than 20 murals through the United-States, one of which is 150 feet in length at the Philadelphia International Airport. David Guinn is one of the important players in the North American mural art sphere.

Artwork description

The given theme for all the artistic projects at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance is “nature and vegetation”. This artistic guideline was developed with the collaboration of the Corporation d’habitation Jeanne-Mance as part of a global improvement plan that aims to position the complex as the green heart of the downtown area. This first mural of the serie Les saisons montréalaises (The Montreal Seasons) depicts a contemporary landscape highlighting the beautiful autumn colors. Horizontal lines cut across the mural and give the illusion of velocity, a reference to the speeding car and bicycle traffic on De Maisonneuve Boulevard. A few of the residents of the Habitations Jeanne-Mance are depicted at the heart of the mural.
