Hillhurst Hardware mural

I made this mural in 2010 on the storefront of one of Calgary’s oldest independently owned and run hardware shops, located in Calgary’s urban village, Kensington/Sunnyside. The project took approximately 3 weeks to complete, and was my very first independent solo undertaking. It has held up well, considering it gets blasted by the sun and is constantly exposed to the weather that is famous to Calgary. I have heard through the grapevine this building is due for demolition, not sure when exactly. It’s fate is in the hands of the developers as they try to give Kensington a facelift of sorts, I will be there that day with a video camera no doubt.
