TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - As part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Street Art Showcase presents Concrete Canvases, a large scale, digital street art installation that examines how we write, explore and ultimately understand our city through the practice of 'urban inscription.'
| The multi-dimensional project, presented by the Joe Fresh® brand and StoneleighTM
Wines, takes the audience on a 'first-person-view' tour of street art. As an introduction,
viewers will watch a video which includes the work of Sheppard Fairey, Mr. Brainwash
and Max Zorn integrated with art from the City of Toronto's "free" graffiti zone 'Queen
West Alley.' A collage featuring the work of many Toronto street artists including [email protected]
and Gary MacLeod will also be on display to demonstrate the many different forms of the
medium. Throughout the night, two prominent local street artists, Uber5000 and André
Castro Duarte, will be live 'projection bombing' their work onto the Joe Fresh store façade
at 589 Queen St West to further immerse the public into the world of street art. Finally,
the audience will be able to participate themselves by virtually inscribing personalized
messages onto the wall.
