The Downtown Traffic Box Art Pilot Project is being led by the City of Brampton’s Cultural Services department with support from Public Works and Engineering. The pilot project seeks to explore placemaking through artistic activations of traffic and utility boxes at street corners throughout the city.
Project Type: Temporary Exhibit
Artist: Michel Nwoye-Vincent
The Doodle Lightbulb artwork was created using the artist’s first set of alcohol-based markers, on mixed-media paper. The main focus was to mix a bit of realism with his cartoony doodle style. Michel also took inspiration from different objects around him to draw the doodles that made up the lightbulb.
