Commissioned by Slate Asset Management, this eight-storey mural produced in collaboration with British artist Phlegm has transformed Toronto’s sleepy midtown neighbourhood into a cultural destination.
Project Type: Permanent Exhibit
About the Project: Slate invited STEPS to reimagine how Yonge and St. Clair could be transformed through contemporary street art that complemented their vision for the area’s revitalization.The striking St. Clair Mural became a local landmark and gained international recognition. Elegant and complex in shape of a human form, the mural is a metaphor for the living, breathing nature of the city and emergence of the soon-to-be revived neighbourhood. The artwork looks sharp as a figure from a distance, while drawing viewers into the finely-etched details as they get close.
The mural is generously supported by the City of Toronto’s StreetARToronto (StART) program, Slate Asset Management LP, CBRE, CIBC, Dulux Paints and Rexall.
