birds on a branch

This large scale public art installation depicts songbirds resting on branches and is a playful counterpoint to the industrial façade of the Parkade and the working riverfront. These monumental fragments of the natural world introduce something lighthearted, gentle and domestic.  The large scale mural transforms the façade of the utilitarian Parkade into an iconic image visible from Westminster Pier Park, the Fraser River and the Skybridge.
