Find The Love is our newest mural in Toronto’s east end on Danforth Avenue!
Talented artist Bareket Kezwer worked with East End Arts, alongside The Danny BIA, and the Outdoor Mural & Street Art Program with the city of Toronto, to create a new mural for the east Toronto community. Located on the side of Hollandaise Diner (2231 Danforth Ave), this colourful mural adds colour and life to the neighbourhood!
“With this mural I wanted to celebrate and amplify the pride residents have in the neighbourhood. The vibrant colours and positive message are intended to uplift people and add joy to their day,” – Bareket Kezwer.
The Find The Love Mural was completed in November of 2018, and is a colourful and welcome addition to the East Danforth neighbourhood! A very big thank you to Bareket for creating this beautiful piece of public art!
